Sam Meyiwa has revealed that he has been sent multiple death threats following his inquest into the murder of his son, former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa.
It’s been just over three years since Meyiwa was murdered in Ekurhuleni after visiting his girlfriend and, despite police reports claiming that they are close to solving the case, Meyiwa’s father has revealed that he is in the dark about new developments.
‘I saw on social media that there’s apparently someone who was there where Senzo was murdered, who talks about what happened on the day,’ he told enca.com.
‘But they don’t want to come out. Even the one who pulled the trigger is known.
‘This is a disgrace. The captain of the national team! What is it that Senzo has done to be forgotten like this?
‘They neglect him because he is no more. They only needed him because he was alive, so it basically means they only cared for living players. Once you die, you’re forgotten.
‘It’s been four years investigating one case, and no one has been arrested. Instead, I’m getting death threats that they want to kill me because I’m the one making noise, and when I’m dead it will be quiet. But I can’t keep quiet,’ he concluded.
