Sam Meyiwa, the father of slain Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa, has passed away. He was in and out of hospital after suffering a stroke last year. Over the years Meyiwa complained about police’s failure to solve his son’s murder. The former Bafana Bafana captain was shot and killed in Vosloorus in 2014.
A suspect was arrested but later released after police failed to link him to the murder.
Meyiwa senior’s death comes five years after Senzo – who played for Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana, was gunned down by alleged robbers at his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo‘s family home in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni, in 2014.
In January this year, police minister Bheki Cele vowed police would make a breakthrough “in the not very distant future” and catch his killers.
Meyiwa relentlessly sought justice for his son and at one stage, alleged that authorities and those that were in the house when Senzo was killed, were bribed into silence.
He passed on without finding out who killed his son.
