Meyiwa insurance pays out R4m, putting matter to rest
The sole beneficiaries of the payout will be his three children, while the Meyiwa family and wife get nothing.
JOHANNESBURG - Orlando Pirates says Senzo Meyiwa's insurance payout matter has now been resolved, and all money due to his beneficiaries has been paid into a trust fund.
R4 million was paid to the Premier Soccer League at the end of last year, and the league distributed the funds between the Meyiwa fund and his former club.
Meyiwa's killers have still not been found 18 months after the former Bafana Bafana captain was shot and killed in Vosloorus.

A trust fund has been set up for Meyiwa's insurance payout, into which R2 million will be deposited, while the other half goes to Orlando Pirates.
The sole beneficiaries of the payout will be his three children, while the Meyiwa family and the former player's partner Mandisa Mkhize will not receive anything.
Former South African Football Association CEO, Raymond Hack, who's appointed as the executor of the payout, says Meyiwa doesn't have a lawful spouse who can benefit.
