Senzo Meyiwa was gunned down at the home of his then girlfriend Kelly Khumalo in October 2014.
It has been 6 years since the death of goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa, and his family says they are still looking for answers.
Recently we published a story that a hitmen has claimed that Kelly Khumalo was the mastermind behind an alleged murder plot…
According to the hitmen the plot was hatched at a mall in Johannesburg, and a dispute arose overpayment and that their families in KwaZulu Natal had to call an urgent meeting to decide that the matter be kept a secret.
Khumalo allegedly told the alleged killers that Meyiwa had promised to give her money but defaulted on the promise. he had also agreed to marry her, but was no longer interested in doing so and had not told Khumalo that he had a wife. In the confession, the alleged hitmen claim that they demanded R400 000 for the job due to Meyiwa’s status.
They further claimed that Khumalo negotiated for the price to come down and said she only had R250 000 upfront and the balance to be paid within two months of the job being completed. After the meeting, the hitmen visited a well-known sangoma whom they asked to perform a ritual so that the hit would be successful. The healer confirmed these claims and also mentioned how the hitmen asked him for muthi that would give them the courage when they faced Meyiwa.
Speaking to All4Women, Sifiso Meyiwa, Senzo’s older brother said: “We only became aware of the reports when we saw the papers. No one told us anything.”
He went on to say: “There is nothing much we can say at this time. We’ll be convinced when the matter is in court.”
A crack team of investigators appointed by Police Minister Bheki Cele took eight months to wrap up investigations that had been stalled for years.
“We have a watertight case. We’ve managed to track down a firearm that was used to kill Senzo. The ballistic test results have positively linked the suspects to the murder, which we’ve established was premeditated,” said an insider.
Kelly Khumalo however denied these claims.
