Senzo Meyiwa murder trial postponed to October 2021

Five accused in Bafana Bafana Captain Senzo Meyiwa’s murder case appeared in Boksburg Magistrate’s Court on Friday morning.

In the last hearing, the accused denied their involvement in the soccer star killing in 2014.

Magistrate Hans Havenga of the Boksburg Magistrate’s Court referred the matter to the Gauteng High Court for final indictment.

The trial will take place on the 25th of October 2021, pre-trial on the 19th of July.

Following the postponement, AfriForum exhibited how they are disappointed in the court for failing to arrest the mastermind behind Senzo’s murder.

AfriForum is the representative of Meyiwa’s family, the private unit thereof is been investigating thebsoccee star’s murder case thus far.

AfriForum leader Neil Kriel calls upon the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to apprehend mastermind behind Meyiwa’s killing.

AfriForum CEO, Kallie Kriel says the NPA must prosecute the mastermind behind Meyiwa’s shooting irrespective of their status as they owe the truth to the community.

“This is one of the reasons why AfriForum is involved in this case: We owe it to the community to ensure that the NPA prosecutes without fear, favour or prejudice,” said Kriel.

Meyiwa’s family want nothing apart from his justice as they are believing in the law enforcement authorities.

“We are seeking justice for the death of Senzo and expect the law enforcement authorities to charge and bring parties against whom there is evidence,” said Nomalanga Meyiwa.

The five suspects in Meyiwa’s case [Muzikawukhulelwa S’Tembu Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Prince Mncube, Mthokoziseni Ziphozonke Maphisa, and Sfisokuhle Sifiso Nkani Ntuli] are charged with murder, attempted murder, armed robbery, possession of firearms without licenses and possession of ammunition.
