A top team of detectives have exposed a trail of social media messages that implicate several people who were ‘seemingly close’ to Senzo Meyiwa. A batch of sensational revelations in the Senzo Meyiwa case this week has blown the case wide open – and it now seems like there’s more to come.
According to a new team of detectives working on the case, fresh evidence suggests that people close to the former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper were involved in his killing.
DETECTIVE TEAM ‘LINK FRIENDS OF SENZO MEYIWA’ TO HIS KILLING
As reported by the Sunday Times, the authorities now have the alleged ‘mastermind’ in their sights. The discovery of several incriminating social media messages is set to have a profound impact on the investigation, with at least two people in Meyiwa’s ‘inner circle’ now believed to be behind his murder more than six years ago.
A new team of detectives, led by Colonel Bongani Gininda, was appointed in January by the national police commissioner, General Khehla Sitole. They’ve proved to be steadfast appointments, and earlier this week, we saw five men appear in the dock on suspicion of killing Senzo Meyiwa – despite protesting their innocence in dramatic fashion.
KELLY KHUMALO, FIVE SUSPECTS, AND THE NEW EVIDENCE
There was also a shock in store for Kelly Khumalo, after leaked NPA documents revealed that she was effectively a ‘person of interest’ in a case that still has South Africa gripped. The popular musician’s cell phone records and alleged ‘relationship with one of the accused’ are set to be probed by the detectives.
Reality star and singer Kelly Khumalo has responded to the allegations that she made phone calls to one of the suspects implicated in the murder of former Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa.
The National Prosecuting Authority mistakenly leaked court papers that implicated Kelly in the murder case to the media, The papers suggested Kelly has a case to answer and sought to obtain calls records to one of the suspects.
The NPA spokesperson Sipho Ngwema said: “This document is not something that should be in the public domain… We need to make sure, all of us (law enforcement) and you (media) that at the end of the day we don’t compromise the integrity of the case.”
However, new evidence discovered in the past few days is now under intense scrutiny. Some of the messages – exchanged between the suspects and even shared across social media – are set to widen the scope of the investigation. One member of the crack team of cops has stated they have ‘good evidence’ to comprehensively connect these people.
