DURBAN – Police Minister Bheki Cele said on Tuesday that those claiming police were not working to crack the case of murdered Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa were “out of order”.
“Nobody should say there is nothing being done about the case,” said Cele. He said the circumstances making it difficult to resolve Meyiwa’s murder “was a story that maybe we will tell one day”.
For now, said Cele, the focus of the police had to be on resolving the case.
The minister was speaking to the media outside the Meyiwa home in Umlazi, where he had just paid his respects to the family following the death of Meyiwa’s father, Sam, who died in the early hours of Monday morning.
Sam Meyiwa had been vocal in calling for justice for his son since the talented soccer player was gunned down in an alleged botched robbery in Vosloorus in October 2014. No one has been arrested for the murder.
