The father of late Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa has passed on after struggling with illness.
Last year, Meyiwa was rushed to Prince Mshiyeni Hospital in Umlazi after his health took a turn for the worse. He suffered a stroke.
His son’s murder case remains unresolved.
According to reports, Meyiwa had not been well since the death of Senzo, who was mysteriously shot dead at the home of his musician girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo, in what is believed to have been a robbery in Vosloorus, Johannesburg, in 2014.
Police Minister Bheki Cele has said that Senzo’s murder case has been a priority for police to investigate and was placed within the top five cases that needed to be attended to.
