Orlando Pirates supporters will paint the streets of Vosloorus black next week Wednesday during a march for justice for their fallen hero Senzo Meyiwa.
Wednesday, 26 October will be exactly two years since the former Pirates and Bafana Bafana captain was gunned down at his girlfriend’s home.
According to organiser Mandla Sindane, who is known as ‘Mgijimi’, the march will start at Vosloorus Stadium and go all the way to Vosloorus Police Station where the group will demand some answers.
“We are going to ask the police what is happening with Senzo’s case as they’ve gone quiet about it. No one is telling us what’s happening about it,” Mgijimi tells KickOff.com.
“The march is going to start at Vosloorus Stadium and go all the way to Vosloorus Police Station. It will start at 10am on Wednesday the 26th. All Orlando Pirates supporters will be there.”
Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza, while confirming an insurance payout for Meyiwa in April this year, said that it is important that closure is brought to the case.
“What is important to me is not the money. What is important is that the murder of Senzo must be solved. It is important for justice in South Africa‚ and for the confidence of this country,” he said.
To date only Zanokuhle Mbatha, who was initially arrested for the murder, was released from custody in November 2014 due to a lack of evidence.
The Hawks are still on the case, while investigators are reportedly searching outside of South Africa for foreign suspects.
