JOHANNESBURG - The former Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa was gunned down at his former girlfiriend and singer Kelly Khumalo's home in Vosloorus.
And, experienced private investigator Brad Nathanson, who's currently handling the case, believes Meyiwa's killing was related to match-fixing and not robbery, as initially suggested.
"I don't believe that man died as a result of home invasion or a robbery, housebreaking or whatever it is they want you to believe," Nathanson told Sunday Independent.
"I think this has something (to do) with match-fixing. That is my belief. Who (would) rob that man anyway? He was a national hero and for me what comes to my mind is match-fixing, and it's the first thing that comes to my mind.
"I don't know what level this investigation was taken to. But, as an investigator of 36 years experience, I am very, very surprised no arrest has been made. It's unbelievable for me. I can't imagine what Meyiwa's family might be going through knowing this man has died and he had such an amazing career and life ahead of him."
Meyiwa's killers are yet to be arrested, but Nathanson is confident of concluding the case, saying all it requires is money and time.
"You can quote me on this one, any case can be solved. All it requires are two things. One is money and another is time," he concluded.
