Accused 5 In The Dock For Senzo Meyiwa Murder

Five men accused of the callous murder of former Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa will be back in court today.

Meyiwa was shot dead seven years ago – on 26 October 2014 – in Vosloorus at the home of his then girlfriend, actress and musician Kelly Khumalo.

The much-loved goalkeeper was at the prime of his career when he was murdered at the age of 30.

The five murder accused Muzikawukhulelwa Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi (Alleged shooter), Mthobisi Mncube, Mthokoziseni Ziphozonke Maphisa, and Sifokuhle Sifiso (Nkani) Ntuli will appear before the high court sitting at the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court.

Sibiya also faces two attempted murder charges in a different court in Vosloorus.

In one of the cases, Sibiya allegedly shot a woman more than 9 times at Vosloorus hostel.

All accused remain in custody.

The appearance is likely to be a brief one to set a trial date.
