JOHANNESBURG - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) says murdered Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa's multimillion rand insurance has been paid out and will now be processed.

The PSL has confirmed it has received the payout and will now notify the family, the Orlando Pirates club and beneficiaries in a proper manner.

The 27-year-old football star was killed at his girlfriend's mother's home in Vosloorus just over a year ago.

Earlier this year, Meyiwa's father, Sam, criticised police for not making progress in the case and also raised concerns about the insurance pay-out delay.

PSL chairperson Irvin Khoza said, "The league will communicate with the Orlando Pirates Football Club. Pirates will then inform all other necessary stakeholders and indicate the conditions on this insurance."
