The first eyewitness is expected to take the stand in the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial in the Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg on Tuesday morning.
The witness was in the house in Vosloorus when the Bafana Bafana captain was shot dead. Thus far, only police witnesses have given testimony.
The witness was due to testify on Monday, but the State failed to secure a flight for him.
Five men are on trial for Meyiwa's murder. He was killed at the home of his girlfriend, singer Kelly Khumalo, in October 2014.
