Fans Demand Justice for Senzo Meyiwa
The #JusticeforSenzoMeyiwa march aims to push for justice in the unresolved case of the beloved goalkeeper.
The orchestrator of this determined movement, Sinqobile Maphisa, has emphasized the primary objectives of the march, placing a particular emphasis on the need for impartiality from the presiding judge and the equitable treatment of all legal representatives involved.
Maphisa, in clear terms, articulated the demands to Zimoja, asserting,
“Our mission encompasses the pressing call for the commissioning of docket 375, the apprehension of all individuals present at the time of Meyiwa’s tragic murder, the release of the five accused in the case, and a fervent appeal to relevant witnesses to come forward offering crucial evidence that holds the potential to resolve this longstanding case.”
Participants have been earnestly advised to attire themselves in Senzo Meyiwa-themed or white t-shirts, comfortable bottoms, and sports shoes as they prepare to make their voices heard in this fervent pursuit of justice
The Haunting Unsolved Murder Case
The dark cloud of mystery continues to shroud Senzo Meyiwa’s untimely death on October 26, 2014, inside Kelly Khumalo’s family residence in Vosloorus.
According to the State’s assertion, it was a failed robbery attempt. Presently, five men stand trial, charged with premeditated murder, attempted murder, robbery with aggravating circumstances, possession of firearms without a license, and possession of ammunition.
These accused individuals bear the names Muzikawukhulelwa Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Prince Mncube, Mthokoziseni Maphisa, and Sifisokuhle Nkani Ntuli.
The Vital Docket 375
Docket 375, which came under the scrutiny of Colonel Joyce Buthelezi and Warrant Officer Meshack Makhubo, was officially filed in 2019.
This critical document lays out charges for those individuals present at the time of Meyiwa’s murder. The list includes Kelly Khumalo, Longwe Twala, Gladness Khumalo, Zandi Khumalo, Tumelo Madlala and Mthokozisi Thwala. Furthermore, the docket proposes charges against Maggie Phiri, alleged to have tampered with the crime scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement officers.
