When his life was cut short at Kelly Khumalo's home, he was already a number one preferred goalkeeper for Orlando Pirates and on his way to dethroning Itumeleng Khune at the national team level, and it remains anyone's guess who might have pulled the trigger that night to break so many South African soccer fans and the Meyiwa family's hearts.
Five men are facing charges of murder, attempted murder, armed robbery, possession of firearms without a licence and the possession of ammunition, and they are currently in jail waiting for their trial.
The bad news recently revealed is that a senior police officer who was due to testify in the Senzo Meyiwa trial has passed away. He was a key state witness, according to a well-known news reporter, Yusuf Abramjee.
This is a very sad setback for the family and people who were hoping that they were going to finally find pleasure. Every detail counts, and with the senior cop now gone, it means that whatever he had planned will be impossible to obtain, and it will follow him to the grave.
Below are the comments from people on Twitter.
How did he die? Was he killed in an accident, murdered or died of natural causes? I'm getting convinced by the day that this case involves some big names, hence the sudden killings of witnesses. This is bigger than we thought, and hey, it's going to be hectic in this case.
Yet, this case might go cold and will be one of those unresolved cases. At that time, it took a lot of people to get 6 feet under.
I know of a similar case. It had 1 accused and 4 witnesses. Guess what? Every time the accused appeared in court, one witness would be reported dead. This went on until all four witnesses were killed and the case was struck off the roll because the state had run out of witnesses.
