UMLAZI - The family of slain Orlando Pirates Captain Senzo Meyiwa says two memorial services will be held for the soccer star tomorrow and Friday.

One will be at the Durban City Hall and the other will be held at a local sports ground in Umlazi.

Meyiwa was killed on Sunday night at the home of his girlfriend, singer Kelly Khumalo on Gauteng's East Rand.

No arrests have yet been made, but police say they are confident of a breakthrough soon.

Identikits of two of the three men involved in the incident have been made released.

The community of Umlazi is expected to come out in their numbers to remember and honor their local hero.

Local organisation, Youth On A Mission, is planning a march from Meyiwa's home to a nearby sports ground where the Bafana Bafana Captain used to play as a child.

They will be singing songs and calling on the community to join them in what is expected to be an emotional gathering.

The memorial service at Durban's City Hall is expected to start at around lunch time.

The Meyiwa family and various dignitaries are expected to attend.

Meanwhile, some of the country's football clubs have spoken out about crime in South Africa.

They say it's getting out of control.

Gavin Hunt, coach of Wits, says South African's need to change their attitude towards crime.

"More people are being killed by guns than actual diseases. This has to come to an end but will it ever? We just accept it as South Africans and it's not good enough."

While interim Moroka Swallows coach Fanie Madida says a change is needed.

"There's really something that needs to be done, not only because of Senzo's sudden death, but because of the deaths of other South Africans as well. Citizens are dying."
