A YEAR after the death of Senzo Meyiwa, the father of the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper maintains there is a conspiracy against finding his son’s killers.

Speaking to News24 on Monday, Sam Meyiwa said he was fondly remembering his son on the anniversary of his death.

Senzo was killed on 26 October, 2014 while he was visiting his girlfriend and pop star Kelly Khumalo at her house in Vosloorus.

“We are very busy today with family rituals. I have recalled some fond memories of my son and it hurts me that his killers have not yet been found.”

Meyiwa said he believed police were taking too long to find his son’s killers.

Last week he told City Press that the family could not afford to perform the ceremony for the late Bafana captain.

He said that to perform ukubuyisa (bringing back the spirit to the family home), they needed to slaughter a cow and a goat, but could not afford R10 000 for a cow and R650 for a goat.

“If I don’t do this ritual, my son is not going to rest in peace,” Meyiwa said.

Shaheen Suleiman, a private investigator, hired by the Meyiwa family to investigate his death, said there has been “no progress” with the investigation into the death of the soccer star.

National police spokesperson Lieutenant-General Solomon Makgale said police were continuing investigations into the matter “on a daily basis”. - News24.
