Senzo's father slammed for compromising case

Johannesburg - It's no secret that Senzo Meyiwa's father, Sam, has been outspoken about his son's death and the investigations into it.

The soccer star was shot and killed 9 months ago yet police have yet to make any arrests.

It's something that Sam Meyiwa has been hugely critical of, also telling the media that he fears for his life, that he is a target and that he has told police who Senzo's killers are.

Perhaps the biggest theory to come from Sam is the allegation that this was not a once-off incident, but rather a planned hit where his son was targeted.

Now police have reacted, saying they were planning on calling a suspect in for questioning, but since Sam has been speaking to the media, the person is now on the run.

Police have also rubbished suggestions that it's a cold case, saying that there are specialist teams investigating the case and they were making progress until Sam opened his mouth.

Those close to the Meyiwa family are denying this though. They say that police are just saying this to cover their tracks...
