Meyiwa's last ninety minutes

Rain is more often regarded as a blessing. On the 26th of October 2014 that rain was a blessing in disguise. The late Orlando Pirates shot stopper, Senzo Meyiwa, gave his life to football and that is what he will forever be remembered for. 'Nzori' bid farewell to his teammates and supporters at a place he called his home- Orlando Stadium. Meyiwa played his final game against Ajax Cape Town in a wet Orlando Stadium. The most High God opened the flood gates of heaven. Only if we knew then that was Meyiwa's final game. As the rain formed streams that flew through the stadium drainage system- the sharply mowed lawn stood no chance but to consume a little water through infiltration. But at the end of all the processes that took place in Soweto- down went a worrier. The pace of the game was faster than the running water. Ajax Cape Town was more like the lawn as the Mother City based club succumbed to the mighty Buccaneers. Like the docket that is gathering dust at the Daveyton Police station- I also have no lead to who killed 'Nzori' on that tragic night. Whether the opened flood gates of heaven closed just after he entered or he drowned in those small rivers at the stadium still defeats the ends of nature. Gone too soon NZORI
