Meyiwa, who was buried at Heroes Acre on November 1, was shot and killed at his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s mother’s house in Volsroorus, but the police are yet to arrest his killers.

On the night of his death, on October 26, 2014, several shots were reportedly heard from the house where Meyiwa was with seven other people.

Meyiwa was later rushed to the Botshelong Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

A man was arrested a month after the shooting after the police issued an identikit, but was later released due to lack evidence against him.

It later emerged that the man, identified as Zamokuhle Mbatha, had initiated a R10 million lawsuit against the police after the charges against him were withdrawn.

In July this year, police said they were close to making an arrest, but three months later, no arrest has been made.

As we mark one year since Meyiwa’s death, we ask, who killed Senzo Meyiwa?
