The tombstone of the late Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa has been vandalised.
South African Football Association (Safa) president Danny Jordaan, other Safa members and Meyiwa’s family took part in an unveiling ceremony at the Mayville Heroes Acre in Durban.
Meyiwa was shot and killed on October 26, 2014, at the home of his girlfriend's mother. It has been six years since his murder and there are still wild allegations floating around.
He was 30.
The police have still not named the person who fired the shot that killed Meyiwa, although they have reportedly located the murder weapon at Cleveland police station in Johannesburg.
However, on the 26th of October 2020, the South African Police minister Bheki Cele announced that five suspects were arrested and they are linked to the murder case of the former Bucs shot-stopper.
Five suspects – Muikawukhulelwa S’Tembu Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Prince Mncube, Mthokoziseni Ziphozonke Maphisa and Sifokuhle Sifiso Nkani Ntuli – have since denied any involvement.
The case was postponed to 5 March 2021 following a brief appearance in court of the five suspects.
