Community members 'disappointed' by progress in Meyiwa case
Today marks exactly a year since the Bafana Bafana player’s death, and no arrests have been made.
JOHANNESBURG - Community members in Vosloorus on the east rand say they are disappointed at the slow rate at which Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa's murder case is moving.
Meyiwa was shot and killed while visiting his girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo, at her mother's house.
Today marks exactly a year since his death, and no arrests have been made.
The house where Meyiwa was last seen alive is empty and the community say this has been the case for months now.
Neighbour, Excellent Letageng, says the community is still in shock.
"I am feeling terrible because it was uncalled for and it's something that we don't need in the community."
Letageng says after a year, he is disappointed that no one has been brought to book.
"The player who was killed was an asset. We feel disappointed that nothing has happened."
Three days after Meyiwa's murder Zamokuhle Mbatha was arrested, and spent 14 days behind bars before prosecutors admitted that there was not enough evidence to pursue the charges against him.
He has filed a civil suit against police for his wrongful arrest.
