Senzo Meyiwa is remembered by South Africans, as today, 26th of October marks the 6th year the professional footballer passed away.
The late icon played as a goalkeeper for Orlando Pirates in the Premier Soccer League, and for the South Africa national team.
However, his death has caused a permanent scar in the hearts of most South Africans as he was shot and killed in a robbery on 26 October 2014.
Till date, the murderer of Senzo is yet to be known and brought to justice.
Over the years, Kelly Khumalo who was reported to be in the same space with Senzo when he was shot, has been claimed to be the killer, and she’s been seriously cyber-bullied for it.
It’s been announced that Police Minister Bheki Cele and the National Police Commissioner will update the nation today at 13:00 on the latest developments regarding.
Senzo’s mother, Ntombifuthi Meyiwa revealed in an interview with Newzroom Afrika that the people who were in the Vosloorus house when her son was shot know the truth.

Tributes and reactions flood Twitter:
He was always destined for greatness!! Worked his socks off to improve his shot stopping, distribution and most essentially dealing with corner kicks…
Six years on we still don’t know…..
We remember his family today….🙏🏾#SenzoMeyiwa pic.twitter.com/PH13QBd0qG

#SenzoMeyiwa Every year that passes without any arrests being made, makes it harder and harder for millions of South African to believe that his killer will ever be found. I alsok this video at his memorial in KZN. To this day, it rings true. Vuka, vuka, vuka Meyiwa! pic.twitter.com/kJ2bVEdYjt
