The defence in the murder trial of former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa is expected to grill State witness Constable Sizwe Zungu.

On Tuesday, 12 September the matter was adjourned in the morning because accused 5 Fisokuhle Ntuli was not feeling well.


As previously reported by The South African, Meyiwa was shot at the home of his then-girlfriend Kelly Khumalo in Vosloorus.

His close friends Mthokozisi Thwala, Tumelo Madlala, Kelly Khumalo, her mother Ntombi Gladness Khumalo, her sister Zandile Khumalo and her then-boyfriend Longwe Twala as well as Kelly’s two children Christian and Thingo were present when the goal keeper was shot on 26 October 2014.
