Orlando Pirates’ slain star Senzo Meyiwa was as charismatic as his former teammate Thamsanqa Gabuza. It’s safe to assume the two were somewhat closely connected.


As widely reported across South African media, local justice is currently searching to prosecute the murder of the late Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa.

Meyiwa was shot and killed at the age of 27 while visiting his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo at her home in Vosloorus in October 2014.

During an interview with the leading sports journalist, Robert Marawa, on the Marawa Sports Worldwide show this weekend, Meyiwa’s former teammate Gabuza was asked what his final message would be to the late athlete before his death?

Gabuza responded to say he would simply tell Meyiwa not to go there, period.

“If you had one last chance to say something to Senzo Meyiwa, what would it be?” Marawa asked the former Orlando Pirates striker.

Don’t go there,” Gabuza said after taking a few seconds to think. “Just don’t go there,” the former Bucs number nine repeated.

“In terms of where he was ultimately shot?” Marawa asked to confirm if Gabuza is referring to Kelly Khumalo’s house in Vosloorus.

“Thank you,” Gabuza said with a very emotional look.
