JOHANNESBURG - As today marks exactly a year since Orlando Pirates goalkeeper and captain Senzo Meyiwa was killed, the club has paid tribute to him by popularising the hashtag 'Justice For Senzo' on social media.

Meyiwa was shot and killed while visiting his girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo, at her mother's house in Vosloorus on the East Rand.

"It's been a year since Senzo's passing and we have started the hashtag 'Justice For Senzo'. What we want to see is this matter coming to rest. If the community has any leads to assist the relevant authorities to uncover what really happened, what unfolded, on that fateful Sunday."
