- The father of slain Pirates goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa, says the club will not have success until closure is reached regarding Senzo's death
- He called on Orlando Pirates management to assist in the investigation
- Senzo was murdered in 2014 but no arrests have yet been made
Senzo Meyiwa's father, Sam, says the Buccaneers will not win another match until his son's spirit is at peace.
Senzo was murdered in 2014 at Kelly Khumalo's mother's house in Vosloorus.
Sam Meyiwa made the comments over the weekend after Orlando Pirates narrowly lost the PSL trophy to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Sam claims that Senzo's spirit is haunting his team. He said that this was because justice had still not been done regarding Senzo's death. Sam said he was saddened that no arrests had been made, almost five years after Senzo was murdered.
"My son's murderer is still out there living as if there is nothing wrong," Sam said, according to the Daily Sun.
According to police, the investigating into Senzo's shooting is still ongoing. However, another of Senzo's family members - his cousin, Siyabonga Miya - has also said that the family wants justice.
Sam called on not only the police but the Orlando Pirates management as well to put more energy into the investigation regarding Senzo's death. He pointed out that his son had loved Orlando Pirates and devoted himself to the team.
Sam also reiterated his belief that Pirates would not win another title until some kind of closure had been found for his son and the family, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
