JOHANNESBURG - Senzo Meyiwa’s father is growing impatient at the lack of progress in solving his son’s murder case.

 

Sam Meyiwa hosted a memorial service on Saturday at his Umlazi, KwaZulu-Natal home to mark three years since the Bafana Bafana captain’s death.

"I've been seeing that very big top people are talking about Senzo's case, ministers, police, colonel, whatever,  but there is no difference. There's nothing, nothing is happening," Meyiwa snr said.

"They are always talking about one thing: that they are still looking. Every time they come here they are still looking [and] we mustn't lose hope."

The renowned goalkeeper was shot during a botched robbery at his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo's home in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni in 2014.

 

Though frustrated, his father said he had not lost hope that the case would one day be solved.

"I have got trust, one day God will help me. The truth will come out.”

Orlando Pirates supporters visited the Meyiwa home after the prayers, bearing gifts for the family.

“We felt it was important as the Meyiwa branch to come and support the family, as they are conducting a prayer service to mark the passing of the nation's goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa," one said.
