Mastermind in soccer star Senzo Meyiwa's murder still out there, lawyers believe

Legal advisors for the group of killed previous Bafana chief Senzo Meyiwa, say they accept more individuals ought to be added to the rundown of those blamed for his homicide. 

This follows the presence of five men blamed for killing Meyiwa without a second thought on October 26, seven years prior.

Ntuli was as of late indicted for the killings of councilor Thami Goodwill Nyembe and Butiza Sandisa Mahlobo, Sphamandla Zungu and siblings Phiwayinkosi Zulu, Mcebisi Zulu and Sibusiso Zulu at the Esikhaleni Regional Court. 

The Meyiwa family's lawful group said they trusted Meyiwa's homicide was an agreement killing. 

Promoter Gerrie Nel, who is addressing the Meyiwa family, said he accepted there was a driving force behind the homicide, and continuing with the preliminary of the five charged without the genius would just make things troublesome at a later stage. 

Meyiwa was gunned down in October 2014 in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni, within the sight of his better half Kelly Khumalo, her mom Ntombi, sister Zandi, Zandi's sweetheart Longwe Twala, and his companions Mthokozisi Twala and Tumelo Madlala. 

"I accept this was an agreement killing. In the event that this is an agreement killing, one would need the driving force to show up with the five blamed. 

"In the event that we take these ones to preliminary, it is exceedingly difficult to get the brains sentenced later. 

"This is something other than a theft turned out badly," Nel said. 

The five claimed aggressors showed up in court under substantial police monitor. Some of them are sentenced lawbreakers. 

During the court procedures, both the State and legal advisors for the Meyiwa family, communicated worry over the security of the nine observers who will affirm at the preliminary. 

The State has not presented its oaths in readiness of the preliminary to ensure the rundown of witnesses. 

"We are totally worried about the security of the observers so the State says the oaths will be uncovered distinctly in March one year from now. 

"It's extremely difficult to get a feeling of the case without approaching all the data." 

Nel said he was certain that the charged being held in guardianship are connected to Meyiwa's homicide, however he said his group was working with police to attempt to get control over the brains. 

Sifiso Meyiwa, sibling of the soccer star, said he accepted that the five blamed had been designated to accept any penalty for his sibling's homicide. 

"They designated these folks since they are as of now dealing with murder indictments. I have proof of all that I am saying and I will introduce it to the courtroom," he said. 

He further asserted that there was unfairness for this situation in light of the fact that the past task group, which had been examining had distinctive proof which did exclude the five suspects. 

Drawn nearer for input on Sifiso Meyiwa's cases, public police representative Brigadier Vish Naidoo said he should go to court with the proof he professes to have.
