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.

I have a feeling that Khanyi Mbau is innocent in this case . Zenzo Meyiwa's wife must be investigated

@Real Pirates Fc, yeah, I concur, what disturb me is that even those who were present on the crime scene are unable to assist the investigation.

This guy must stop talking to the media cause he is making enemies by his big mouth . Some football lover's didn't like what he said about Senzo's age in the media . He should have kept quiet instead of saying " I am surprised that Senzo is ... years old cause his twin brother is ... years old , blah blah blah " . Now he must let Senzo rest in peace , he is not the first person to die in his family . He must be a man and look forward and forget about Senzo , he is no more . If I was him I would not attend the case even if the murders could be arrested now
