Hero's Welcome For Downs, Hero's Send-off For Senzo

Last week, we brought you the story of Orlando Pirates supporters who are planning a march on Vosloorus Police Station to demand justice for the as yet unresolved murder case of Senzo Meyiwa. The supporters have now gained some powerful friends in this regard.

In a bid to seek justice for the slain Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goal minder, the National African Football Supporters' Association (NAFSA) will join forces with Orlando Pirates supporters in support of a scheduled peaceful march to Vosloorus Police Station on Wednesday morning.

NAFSA's decision comes after the organisation received an invitation from Pirates supporters to support the march, which was prompted by the silence on the arrest of murderer/s of Meyiwa.

"This resolute move by Orlando Pirates supporters is one which seeks nothing else but justice for our very own Senzo Meyiwa, his family, the entire football fraternity and the people of South Africa. Our message is very clear, justice delayed is justice denied. South Africans want this painful chapter closed no later than yesterday," NAFSA secretary-general Siyabulela Makunga said.

Preceding the march will be another significant campaign for NAFSA: a hero's welcome at OR Tambo International Airport to mark the return of newly crowned African kings Mamelodi Sundowns.

On Wednesday morning, NAFSA members will not only celebrate Sundowns' historic win but also club president Patrice Motsepe's unprecedented move to ferry 140 Sundowns supporters to Cairo, a move NAFSA says "is a game-changer" in South African football.

"We are calling on all our members and South Africans at large to come out in big numbers and support these heroic events. Without a doubt, the two events constitute matters of national interest," Makunga added.
