Minister of Police Bheki Cele has rejected claims that Senzo Meyiwa's murder docket has been lost.
Briefly.co.za reported that Cele had originally said the docket was with the National Prosecuting Authority while commenting on AfriForum's announcement that it would be joining the investigation.
eNCA reports that the minister has now confirmed that the police currently possess the file, adamant that the reports of the docket being misplaced are false (as well as reckless and hurtful to the Meyiwa family).
Cele has defended the work done by the police in the investigation that stems from the 2014 murder of the Bafana Bafana icon in the home of musician, Kelly Khumalo.
The politician was adamant that AfriForum had come on board not to solve the crime, but to embarrass the justice system.

Citizens have come out in support of AfriForum's decision to join the investigation, with some saying the matter has taken too long to resolve.
