The recent reporting and updates on Senzo Meyiwa’s murder, from the Police Chief, to the Police Minister of Police, has felt like a slap in my families’ face. I feel for Senzo's family and understand their pain and anguish. 

I also feel for my family. We lost my uncle who was murdered in front of his children, in July 2014. Nothing has been said about his case, instead, it was classified as cold, before even witnesses were interviewed and is now closed. I feel equally for all other families who have lost their loved ones. 

Our stories are never told. Why? Because we are not famous, important, known? Our investigations never make it past the crime itself being reported. It hurts when so much publicity and investigations are being made about one individual, when so many other murders are unsolved and not assigned to an investigator. 

All lives matter. May all the souls that have departed under such brutal circumstances rest in peace. And may all cases be treated equally.
