Lack of evidence leads to dropped charges against Meyiwa suspect

2014-11-11 13:07

There is insufficient evidence to successfully prosecute a man allegedly implicated in the murder of Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa, the National Prosecuting Authority confirmed today. Watch.WATCH

Johannesburg - Police comment was not immediately available following a report that slain Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain Senzo Meyiwa knew his killer.

The City Press earlier reported that police were investigating those who were with Meyiwa on the evening he was killed.

Three detectives involved or closely linked to the investigation said they suspected one of the people Meyiwa socialised with was likely his killer.

"I can assure you that a witness who was there during the shooting will soon be taken in for questioning and possibly be arrested thereafter," one of the detectives reportedly said.

Meyiwa was killed in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni, while visiting his singer and actress girlfriend Kelly Khumalo last month. Two men allegedly entered the house on October 26 and demanded cellphones before shooting Meyiwa and running away.

Earlier this month, murder charges were withdrawn against Zanokuhle Mbatha, who had been arrested in connection with the case.
