Following the goalkeeper’s death, after he was gunned down at his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s mother’s house in Vosloorus during a reported robbery on 26 October 2014, the PSL announced in November last year that Meyiwa’s insurance pay-out had been received by the league.
The league promised to contact the Meyiwa family to discuss the matter with them. Yesterday, when the Pirates boss announced that the team’s defender Siyabonga Sangweni has retired from professional football, he also added that the club has planned to meet with the Meyiwa family for the last time next week to discuss the issue of the insurance pay-out.
Meyiwa senior has spoken to the Siya crew about his delight at the latest developments regarding the insurance money.
“Everything is going well and there will be a meeting next week. Things will be fine. I will have time to relax. It hasn’t been easy. I’ve had to pay rent, pay for electricity, pay for water and a lot of other things that one has to pay for. Things won’t be the same, I tell you. The most important thing that we should prioritise are his (Senzo’s) children. They shouldn’t suffer. They should have a better upbringing. That’s a priority,” said Meyiwa.
The Siya crew understand that Meyiwa and the family will be in Johannesburg on Wednesday for the meeting. The investigation for Meyiwa's killers has been ongoing and there has been yet to be any arrests made.
