Mine Worker Confesses To Killing Senzo Meyiwa
Six years later, the police have arrested 5 men who are alleged to be in connection to the death of Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana player Senzo Meyiwa. The suspects are said to be in jail for committing other crimes not related to the murder of Meyiwa.
Senzo Meyiwa was gunned down at his girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo’s house in Ekurhuleni, 6 years ago.
National police spokesperson, Brigadier Vish Naidoo said he could not comment on the case.
“A lot of damage has been done on this case and, therefore, I can’t make any comment about it,”
Senzo Meyiwa Killer Confesses?
According to Sunday Independent sources, the main suspect who pulled the trigger that ended Senzo Meyiwa’s life was arrested on June 16 this year in Rustenburg, North West. He was a mine worker in Carletonville on the Gauteng West Rand.
The mine worker is said to have admitted to killing Meyiwa to an independent police officer, after his arrest. The man allegedly confessed that he and his friends were hired to kill Meyiwa on October 18, 2014, after they were promised R250 000 for the hit.
The mine worker confessed to having shot Senzo Meyiwa when the footballer tried to hit him with a chair. The second suspect was arrested on June 22 at a hotel in Ekurhuleni after the police followed him from KZN, while the third suspect, who is also a mine worker, was nabbed last December also in Carletonville.
It is believed that Senzo Meyiwa had allegedly promised someone money but he didn’t fulfill his promise. The individual is known but can not be named yet as police are continuing with the investigations.
According to the Sunday Independent, the police are still investigating whether any of the people who were in the house when Meyiwa was shot, can be charged or linked to his murder.
