Senzo Meyiwa police close to making shock arrest: Claims

Senzo Meyiwa police close to making shock arrest: Claims
Published: 2015 January 14 07:29:16 (14435 Views)
Late last year it was rumoured that South African police no longer believed Senzo Meyiwa was murdered by two robbers, as described by the seven people who were with him when he was killed.

A source close to the investigation told Daily Sun the police are following a lead after a witness who was in the house came forward with information and they are apparently close to making a shock arrest.

The source said: "The police are keeping things quiet but they are close to making an arrest.

"Not everyone who was in that house at the time of the murder is telling the truth. People are going to know the truth very soon," said the source.

Senzo's sister Noma Meyiwa, 26, said, "We don't believe that of all those people who were in the house with Senzo, none of them knew the gunman," said .

Of Meyiwa's friend Tumelo 'Tu' Madlala, she said he is a liar and added that she was surprised by Tumelo's behaviour since Senzo's death.

"Before Senzo's death Tumelo was always visiting us. That changed after our brother's death. He last came here on the day before Senzo's funeral. Since then he has disappeared."

"From the day of the shooting Tumelo's behaviour made us suspicious.

"Of all the people in the house we expected Tumelo to tell us the truth."

She said he left Durban to be with Senzo on the day of his death and they thought he would come home the following day to tell the family what had happened.

"But he decided to stay with the Khumalos the whole week. As far as we know it was the first time he'd met them."

She called on the police to speed up the investigation so the family could reach closure.

She said they were angry to find Tumelo driving around with Kelly in Senzo's car when her father went to collect it.

She said on the day Senzo's body arrived home, his mum asked Tumelo why he had not called the family to tell them what happened.

"Since then we have never seen him again," she said.

Meanwhile another friend, Mthokozisi Twala, 27 has spoken about that night saying "Senzo's death haunts me every day of my life.

"Every night I pray to God for justice for my best friend's cruel murder. There is nothing I want more than justice," said Mthokozisi Twala (27).

"When I watched him play against Ajax FC I didn't know that I was watching him play for the last time.

"After the match Senzo insisted that I join them for lunch and sleep over at his house."

He said they ended up spending the following day with their friend Tumelo.

"We made jokes and laughed, not knowing that it was the last time," said Mthokozisi.

"I haven't had a good day since his death."

He said he still relives the moment that the Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper died.

Senzo collapsed in the lounge of Kelly Khumalo's mother's house in Vosloorus, Johannesburg, after he was shot in the back on Sunday 26 October last year, allegedly by robbers.

He said he could not celebrate Christmas last year without his friend. And he was supposed to talk at the memorial service and funeral but he couldn't bring himself to say anything.

"The pain was too great for me. I had no time to prepare myself for his death," said Mthokozisi.

"I still get emotional talking about him and what he meant to me."

He said he lost his sister shortly after the funeral, making it a double tragedy.

"I know that Senzo is a great angel in heaven looking down on his children, his family and his friend," said Mthokozisi.

He told the Dailysun he will do anything to see Senzo's killers behind bars.

"There are strange people who come looking for me at my house and that makes me scared. I don't know what they want, but if I have to, I am willing to follow Senzo," he said.
