The father of the late Orlando Pirates goal keeper Senzo Meyiwa has been rushed to hospital. Sam Meyiwa was taken ill on Monday after suffering from a stroke Briefly.co.za has gathered. According to his family, Sam's health has been failing because the murder of his son Senzo still remains unresolved. Senzo was gunned down in what is believed to have been a robbery in Vosloorus Johannesburg more than three years ago.
According to the Daily Sun, Sam was home when his body suddenly went numb. The family attributes Sam's failing health to the failure by police to bring to book the criminals who took away his son's life. Sam Meyiwa had made a direct plea to president Cyril Ramaphosa for the case to be solved. In an interview broadcast live on air on eNCA Sam begged the President to get the case solved.
His stroke comes at a time when former soccer player Ntokoza Sikhakhane has been working with Sam and the family to stage a commemoration match to raise up to R50 000 for erecting a tombstone for the Senzo.
