Echoing The Editor's Sentiments
Soccer Laduma editor, Vuyani Joni, has panned a very emotional yet informative column on issue:1149 of the publication.
How the case of Senzo Meyiwa has been dragging for half a decade remains a misery to his family and the country at large. SAPS and NPA aren't willing to help the grieving Meyiwa family. Senzo was a national icon and if case of a national assets can drag this long what about an ordinary man from Ga-Mokopane or Mgungundlovu? Former Bafana Bafana coach, Ephraim 'Shakes' Mashaba onced said "In the absence of the best make use of the worst."
The best we thought we have in the country are the SAPS and NPA but both have failed. Now the Meyiwa family have opted to make use of a racist body in AfriForum. The description of AfriForum by Wikipedia fits the bill as a racist organisation. But if the men and women in blue are implacted in the very case they should be resolving then Afriforum is the right option to work with.
There were people in that Kelly Khumalo's family house on that fateful night but they all act as if Senzo just evaporated into thin air. Justice will always prevail. Police Minister, Bheki Cele, promised the Meyiwa family that he was nearing closer to bring the perpetrators to book. Just to tweak an old adage: so close yet so far.
Our Crime intelligence seems not to be so intelligent after all. People can't play hide and seek with law enforcers just because they have deep pockets.
Make the arrest or football loving people should consider coming together and arm twist the judiciary to ensure justice for Senzo. We have lost a star as a country and the man or woman who pulled the trigger is galavanting in the streets like nothing happened.
Are the rich above the law? If not, then why no one has not been arrested? Afri Forum is racist but we don't care whether the cat is black or white as long it catches mice. AfriForum please bring the perpetrators to book. Senzo may never come back but his killers can't live freely after taking his life.
