Vilakazi, who bought the house for his parents in Orlando East, slept through the ordeal in a room at the back of the property.

"It happened after 12 and I was sleeping in one of the rooms at the back. They asked about my whereabouts and the keys of my car," Vilakazi tells

"My mom, father and young brother were held hostage by the criminals. They took cash, TV set, music system, wedding rings from my parents and some of my clothing.

"Everything happened when I was sleeping and I didn't hear anything. Imagine if I woke up and went in what would have happened.

"Everything just happened when I was still hurt and trying to recover from what happened to Senzo Meyiwa.

"I am emotionally affected as well as my mom."

The 24-year-old is set to miss his club's League clash with Chippa United in Port Elizabeth tomorrow as he helps his family recover from the incident.

Vilakazi's Bafana teammate Meyiwa was buried in Durban on Saturday after being fatally shot in Vosloorus on October 26.
