Meyiwa to be laid to rest in Umlazi, Durban this weekend!

Responding to a question on crime in the National Council of Provinces, he said South Africa had been robbed of a great talent. Meyiwa, who also captained Soweto football team Orlando Pirates, was shot dead in Vosloorus in Ekurhuleni on Sunday night. Ramaphosa said the whole country was saddened by his untimely death. “I also want to say that the government of South Africa… we also pass our condolences to the family of Senzo Meyiwa, and indeed to the fans of football and his club as well. “Everybody in our country is saddened by his untimely death. This is a death that should not have happened, and we are deeply, deeply sorry, and we are robbed of a great talent that could have made our nation proud over the next few years,” he said. In honour of Meyiwa’s passing, Orlando Pirates’ chairman Irvin Khoza announced at a press conference that there would never again be a number one jersey at the club. “I don’t think anyone can replace Senzo, and his jersey will never be worn by anyone else again,” he said. Meanwhile, reports are that Senzo’s wife Mandisa, who was seen at the Vosloorus Police Station on Tuesday but did not talk to the press, is not coping. Kelly Khumalo, the girlfriend of the late has been barred from attending the funeral, according to the family and Senzo’s father. Investigations are still on-going following the questioning of suspects by the cops and private detectives.     Meyiwa will be laid to rest at his home in Umlazi, on Saturday, November 1.
