It has been five years since Meyiwa was shot and killed in 2014 at a house in Vosloorus, Gauteng, and no one has been sentenced for the brutal act. 

In their update, AfriForum revealed that it is demanding a judicial inquiry into the death of the shot-stopper.

In a statement translated from their official website, AfriForum said, “Adv. Gerrie Nel, head of AfriForum’s private prosecution unit, on behalf of the Meyiwa family demanded that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) recommend a formal judicial inquiry into the death of Senzo Meyiwa. AfriForum and the Meyiwa family announced last month that the organization will represent the Meyiwa family. Nel has been appointed as the Meyiwa family’s advocate in the investigation into the death of this former Bafana Bafana captain.”

AfriForum CEO Kallie Kriel said, as quoted in a statement on AfriForum’s website, “The inquest will give Nel and interested parties the opportunity to testify in court and cross-examine witnesses. It will help the magistrate to find out who was responsible for Meyiwa’s death. Unique cases require unique solutions and AfriForum hopes that this investigation will eventually lead to progress in the case.” 

In addition, Nel has been quoted on the website as saying, “We believe the murder can only be solved by looking at what happened in the house on that day in 2014 and not on the basis of allegations of robbers who came in.”
