Two years ago, South Africa woke up to the shocking news that Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa was murdered in cold blood. In the meantime, justice is yet to be meted out on his killers.
Meanwhile, Pirates’ supporters are scheduled to embark on a peaceful march to Vosloorus Police Station on Wednesday morning to seek justice for Meyiwa.
The football icon was shot and killed on 26 October, 2014 in Vosloorus‚ Gauteng. The 30-year-old was given a state funeral at the Moses Mabhida Stadium where thousands gathered to mourn his passing. Two years on, no arrest has been made and no sentence has been passed for his death.
Nevertheless, while we wait patiently for justice to be done, the nation including family; friends and fans of the fallen star took to social media to make sure his legacy lives on.
Thus, Twitter has been inundated with tributes and messages to ensure that the late footballer’s name was on the trends list.
