Senzo Meyiwa’s Father Hurting

Senzo Meyiwa’s Death Is Affecting His Family

By Soccer Laduma - Nov 07, 2017 04:28 PM

Sam Meyiwa, who is the father of the late former Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa, is still hurt that there are still no arrests for his son’s death.

Meyiwa was shot and killed in Vosloorus in 2014. Three years later, no one has been sentenced for his passing.    

“It hurts every time I think about the day of his death. I remember everything about the day he was killed. It brings all the sad memories. His mother and I used to not watch him on the day of the game when he played. We were nervous for watching him as the game happened. We used to watch him when they showed the repeat of the game on TV. His sisters and brother would watch as the game happened but we as the parents would watch the repeat. We were scared that he would concede goals or get injured,” Meyiwa told the Siya crew.

In remembrance of the late football star, the Meyiwa household recently held a prayer meeting in their Umlazi home as the football fraternity commemorated three years without him.   

“The day he was killed I had just watched the repeat of the game he played the previous night against Ajax (Cape Town). His brother, Sifiso, came to deliver the news of his death to us but on his arrival at home, he couldn’t because of nervousness. One of the neighbours found the courage to tell us what happened. Just like that, he said, ‘Don’t cry, Senzo is no more.’ I was like, ‘So we had been watching on TV someone who didn’t exist anymore.’ Then it made sense that he had not responded to the SMSes I sent to him earlier in the day. Usually, he would respond immediately when I sent him SMSes alerting him to the mistakes he made in a game and so on. But that evening I wasn’t getting any reply from him,” continued Meyiwa.

“It hurts. We received phone calls from the Orlando Pirates office telling us that Senzo got hurt. There was a bit of hope, thinking that he was still alive. Then Mr. (Irvin) Khoza called me to say, ‘I’m sorry, the boy got hurt.’ We were all hurt. What makes me hurt the most is that Senzo was everything in my life and my family. Life is no longer the same without him being part of our lives. Senzo’s killers aren’t being caught and arrested. Everything is at a standstill,” concluded Meyiwa.

Can't we start a campaign of some sort as supporters of football? To put more pressure on them. At the same time I don't want the family to get hurt in the process. Eish! What can we do?

It's really sad that nothing has happened as yet. How are they supposed to move on when they don't have peace? The peace they'll only have once justice is served. It was nice when we ,Khosi, play against Bucs when Senzo was around.I feel your pain mabhakaniya.#RIP bhakajuju. May justice come very soon

I'm a Pirates fan , but the defeaning silence of Dr Ivin Khoza starts to raise eyebrows to many, one investigator previously said senzo's murder might have been associated with match fixing, something is not okay here , but time will tell

When Fikile Mbalula was appointed minister of police I got a sense that finally we will get some closure into the matter, I had hoped that he will put this specific issue on top of the agenda but he has since been mum about it, I wonder if the family will ever see the light at the end of the tunnel, it looks unlikely from where I'm standing. Someone knows something and is not telling the nation
