Crime Justice



Sifiso Meyiwa further alleged that the accused were offered money to admit to the crime.

he preliminary of five men blamed for the homicide of previous Orlando Privateers and Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa will begin in April one year from now. 

On Monday, Muzikawukhulelwa S'Tembu Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Sovereign Mncube, Mthokoziseni Ziphozonke Maphisa, and Sifisokuhle Sifiso Nkani Ntuli showed up in the Pretoria High Court sitting in Palm Edge where it was uncovered that the matter is prepared for preliminary. 

Meyiwa was at his better half songstress Kelly Khumalo's home in October 2014 when obscure men went into the Vosloorus house and shot him dead. 

One individual was captured yet later delivered because of absence of proof, and the case went cold as no data was approaching. 

A leap forward, however, was reported by Police Priest Bheki Cele last year after the blamed were captured on 26 October, the day which stamped a long time since Meyiwa was killed. Ntanzi is asserted to have been the person who pulled the trigger. 

During the men's appearance on Monday, the examiner, advocate George Baloyi, said the State had met with all the guard attorneys, aside from Ntuli's legal counselor, on 8 October to agree. Baloyi said they had consented to give up articulations from nine observers that had been retained for security reasons, and that they would hand them more than about a month and a half before the preliminary date. 

In the interim, last week, Ntuli showed up in a KwaZulu Natal court and was seen as blameworthy of the homicides of six individuals, including an ANC ward councilor. 

Ntuli's promoter Zandile Mshololo moved toward the court with a solicitation to have his customer moved out of Kokstad Supermax jail. 

As per Mshololo, Ntuli was moved from Qalakabusha Jail in northern KwaZulu-Natal to Kokstad with next to no authority notice or request. 

Nonetheless, Baloyi said he was explained to that there was a particular motivation behind why he was requested to be kept at C Max jail in Kokstad. 

"I don't figure we can transform it without examining why the detainment place changed. It is a matter we should explore," he Baloyi. 

Acting Appointed authority Acting adjudicator Carla Veenendaal said that there was next to no she could do once an individual is under the management of the Division of Remedial Administrations. 

The men will be back in court on 11 April where the preliminary was relied upon to begin.

#SenzoMeyiwa’s brother, Sifiso said the 5 accused men are innocent and have nothing to do with his brother’s death.
