SAPS investigate witnesses in Meyiwa shooting


The South African Police Service members (SAPS), involved with the investigation into the murder of Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain, Senzo Meyiwa, have reportedly started exploring the possibilities that he might have known his eventual killer.

Meyiwa was shot and killed in a “botched” robbery, whilst visiting his girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo, in Vosloorus on the East Rand on the 26th of October. He was buried at the Heroes Acre Cemetery in Chesterville, KwaZulu-Natal on the 1st of November.

Police now suspect that the killer could have been socialising with Meyiwa before he was shot, and will investigate every person that was in the Vosloorus home on the night of the shooting.

One of the witnesses, who was inside the house at the time of the shooting, will be investigated and his hand gun has been confiscated and will undergo forensic analysis later this week

"I can assure you that a witness who was there during the shooting will soon be taken in for questioning and possibly be arrested thereafter," one of the detectives has said.
