Johannesburg - A payment of a R4 million life policy on murdered Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain Senzo Meyiwa will be paid out next week, Irvin Khoza reportedly said on Wednesday.

Khoza, chairman of the Premier Soccer League chairman and Orlando Pirates soccer club made the announcement at a news conference in Johannesburg.

Khoza was reported as saying that in terms of the policy 50 percent of the amount will be paid to the Pirates soccer club‚ and the rest to the Meyiwa family.



Meyiwa was gunned down in the Vosloorus house of his music star girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s mother on the night of October 26, 2014.

It has been reported that Meyiwa was shot in the presence of Khumalo’s mother, Ntombi, Khumalo's sister Zandi, Chicco Twala’s son Longwe, and Meyiwa’s friends from Durban, Tumelo Madlala and Mthokozisi Twala.

The police’s investigation initially led to the arrest of Zamokuhle Mbatha for the murder. He was later released without being charged and said that he was suing the police.

No other arrest have been made.
