A tombstone unveiling was held at the iconic Moses Mabhida Stadium to celebrate the life of the Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, whose murderers are still at large, though investigations are ongoing to try and put them behind bars.

Bafana face Sao Tome Principe on Friday at the same venue in a crucial 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier and on their itinerary on Tuesday was to visit the burial site, with his Itumeleng Khune and SAFA president Danny Jordaan among the speakers.

The squad and several delegates then proceeded to the Mayville Heroes Acre cemetery in Durban, where the tombstone was officially unveiled.  

Five arrests were made late last month as questions were asked yet again six years to the date Meyiwa was shot and killed in Vosloorus at the house belonging to the mother of his girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo.

Bafana will then travel to Port Elizabeth for the second leg of the AFCON qualifier against Sao Tome next week Tuesday after their opponents agreed to forfeit hosting due to the Covid-19 travel restrictions.
