'I Used To Take Nzori To The Barbershop'

Today marks exactly two years since the late Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa, passed on. Gauteng Orlando Pirates Supporters had a peaceful march to Volsloorus Police Station earlier today to demand justice for their fallen hero. Supporters Club spoke to Rasta Yeko, a die-hard Buccaneer from Cape Town who knew Senzo from his teenage years.

"It still feels like yesterday, I don’t even know where to begin describing how I feel about Senzo's death," he said.

"Even today, we always say that if it was him, we would have won the game. The boy was dedicated to Pirates and he was always willing to die on the field for Pirates. I was told there was a march to the police station of Vosloorus, I am fully behind it even though I couldn't go there.

"You know when I first met 'Nzori', he was only 15 years old, when he was playing for Pirates in the Bayhill tournament. I would take them to the township (Khayelitsha) to get his hair cut at the barbershop there. He was the one boy who was always asking questions all the time, and he would tell his teammates, 'Gents, if we don't ask Tar Russ, we won't know anything.'

"I hope his family finds strength in all of this."

Do you think Meyiwa's case is being treated with the urgency it deserves?
