Three well-known personalities and a top cop reportedly face imminent arrest in connection with the murder of the late goalkeeper.

According to the Sunday World, a fourth person, also alleged to be well-known, also faces arrest in the next few days for their role in the murder of Meyiwa.

The Sunday newspaper also reports that the mother of one of the suspects as well as two other people are also being eyed by the crack detective team for their role in the 2014 murder of the national team and Orlando Pirates keeper.

Police spokesperson Brenda Muridili said investigations were still underway and couldn’t confirm or deny that the police approached the prosecutors to grant them warrants to arrest the suspects.

“You need to speak to the NPA about that, I cannot comment on their behalf,” she said.

NPA South Gauteng spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane said the NPA had no knowledge of this.

Meyiwa was gunned down in an alleged armed robbery at his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s home in Vosloorus in October 2014.

No arrests have been made in connection with his murder so far.
