The late Senzo Meyiwa’ s mother Ntombifuthi Meyiwa has decided to come out and set the record straight on the latest developments on her son’s case.
In an interview with Newzroom Afrika she discusses Kelly Khumalo , the recent arrests and the alleged murder weapon being found.
His Son Is Innocent
It is no secret that Senzo’s family never approved of his realtionship with Kelly since he was technically still married to Mandisa Mkhize who he had left for Kelly at the time.
Hence when it comes to the songstress and her involvement in her son’s death Mrs Meyiwa doesn’t means her words.
“I’m scared of her. The same person who still refuses to tell the truth about what happened to my son.
My biggest wish is to see the people who killed Senzo arrested and for the truth to come out completely.
What hurts the most is the people who know very well what happened to my son. We know the whole truth, even the killer, but we keep seeing people blatantly lying about what happened to Senzo,”
She is certain the killers will be found and exposed but also called upon her late son to tell them what happened from beyond the grave.
“People must stop playing games with us. Senzo, I’m calling you as your mother, my child… wherever you are, let your spirit speak for itself. You know who shot you, you know their names.”
Yesterday the police minister Bheki Cele made an announcement that five suspects have been arrested in connection with his murder.

In a press briefing, Cele confirmed that the arrests took place on Monday between 8 am and 10 am, both in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.
“I am happy to announce that there has been a breakthrough in the Senzo Meyiwa case,” he said.
“The first five suspects have been arrested between 8 am until 10 am this morning in Gauteng and KwaZulu Natal. These arrests are as a result of much disciplinary intervention approach to these investigations which is working closely with the director of public prosecutions.”
Cele said more arrests can still happen. He said the reason why there has been a delay in the arrest of the perpetrators involved in this case is that there were too many leaks to the media.
“The family has been updated all other times but not this time, expect that the Minister will be speaking to the family at around 18:00 tonight.
The problem this time has been too many leaks, so we didn’t want to put further confusion to the family as if we are briefing them on leaks, as if we are part of the leaks as the police,” he said.
The arrests come after News24, recently reported that police have made a major breakthrough in the unresolved murder case of the footie.
The publication reported that police uncovered a weapon that was used to kill Senzo and the murderer is known.
It further reported that the weapon was found in a safe at the Cleveland Police Station, and the man who pulled the trigger is currently incarcerated as he is allegedly serving a 30-year sentence in the Johannesburg Prison for the murder of taxi boss Reggie Mohlala who was killed with the same gun.
Senzo was murdered in 2014 by intruders who allegedly broke into the home of his then girlfriend Kelly Khumaloso in Vosloorus.
