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.

In addition, celebrities like Skhumba Hlope joined in paying their tributes to Senzo Meyiwa.

Meanwhile, fans have been pleading with singer and actress Kelly Khumalo (who was present at the time that Senzo was shot at her mother’s home in Vosloorus‚ Gauteng ) to finally tell South Africa who killed the footballer.
Senzo’s father Sam Meyiwa also expressed regret and disappointment that it’s taking so long for justice to be done on the case.

“Senzo’s killer or killers aren’t being arrested even though there were people in the house when he was killed. Someone from the people who were in the house should know what happened. We would have found peace and accepted what happened if we knew that someone was arrested for the murder. As Senzo was popular, I thought that someone would have been arrested for his death by now,” Sam said.

The footballer was the sole bread winner of the family.
