Meyiwa was gunned down in Vosloorus at the house of his girlfriend's mother.

Advocate Gerrie Nel, Head of AfriForum's Private Prosecution Unit, said he is disappointed that further arrests have not been made.

"I really expected the mastermind to be arrested by today. In October last year we indicated we thought there's enough evidence to arrest the mastermind, even then."
