Senzo Meyiwa’s brother Sifiso Meyiwa claims he is receiving threats from the police, that might result in him being arrested, as he continues to publicly campaign that the killers of his brother should be jailed.
Sifiso is one of the Meyiwa’s family members, who won’t rest until justice is served in the murderer of his late brother. Eight years later into the murder of the former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Senzo’s killers have not been sentenced, and every time new information emerges regarding the case.
The five men accused of orchestrating his murder are currently behind bars, and all five claim to be innocent. They say they are being used as scapegoats to protect the real mastermind behind the murder of Meyiwa.
In a video that is currently trending on social media, Sifiso alleges that the investigating officers handling Meyiwa’s murder case are threatening him. He says he may be probed for corruption, and this is to prevent him from continuing with his investigation.
“I just wanted to inform the nation that the people who are investigating my brother’s case, one of them called me on the 29th of March and she said she wanted to have a meeting with me. She said there is an investigation against me with allegations of corruption. They are trying to threaten me because of something I discovered in the case,” he said.
It is unknown what the corruption charges are, but Sifiso said he is not scared of their threats because God always protects him. Sifiso said even advocate Malesela Teffo, is receiving threatening phone calls and mentioned that the police were going to be embarrassed about what was going to happen in court on the 11th of April.
