Police have offered a R150 000 reward for information that could lead to the arrest of the killers of soccer player Senzo Meyiwa.

"Reward of up to R150 000 is on offer 4 any info that can lead to arrest," the SA Police Service tweeted.

The 27-year-old Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper was shot dead at about 8pm last night.

The incident happened at a house in the Zamo Section in Vosloorus.

“There were 7 people inside the house. Two suspects went into the house, one remained outside. The 3 fled on foot after the shooting,” SAPS tweeted.

No one else was injured.

“We can assure all South Africans that we will do all [we] can to bring Meyiwa’s killers [to] book,” they said.

Captain of both club and country, Meyiwa played for Orlando Pirates on Saturday at the Orlando stadium in their Telkom Knockout 4-1 quarterfinal win over Ajax Cape Town.

Sports minister Fikile Mbalula said the ministry would be in contact with Meyiwa’s family before issuing a full statement.

“The Minister of Sports and Recreation, Minister Fikile Mbalula, has with deep sorrow taken note of widely publicised reports of the passing away of Orlando Pirates and South African Goal keeper, Senzo Meyiwa,” the ministry said in a brief statement.

“The Ministry is currently reaching out to his family and his club and will issue a full statement in due course.”
