- Chicco Twala has weighed in on the Senzo Meyiwa murder investigation and given police officials involved his endorsement
- The musician has responded to new allegations that his son, Longwe, had been involved in the soccer icon's death
- Twala says his son must answer to the claims, but that he would be the first to hand Longwe over to the cops if he were guilty
Briefly.co.za noted the report had included the allegation that Senzo had been attempting to break up a fight between Longwe and another witness when he had been shot.
While police have released a statement denying the claims put forward in the report, Twala has weighed in with his opinion:
“I did not commit murder. If my son committed murder, I will be the first person to take him to the police. I will never defend my son if he murdered somebody.”
The veteran musician told TshishaLIVE that he didn't believe his son was involved, placing his full faith in the police to solve the case:
“The police are doing a wonderful job investigating the matter. It is just that these people are publishing nonsense. People must leave the police to do their job and they will find the culprit. It is nonsense. It is fake stories. I won’t believe anything until the police finalise their investigation.”
Twala feels that if this version of events was true, one of the witnesses would have spoken up. Rumours have reportedly alleged that the muso would have bribed investigators but Twala has outright denied it:
“Now everyone wants to involve me in this, thinking I can bribe the whole Hawks. How powerful can I be to bribe four strangers who I don’t even know. The four people that were there, Senzo’s friends, I don’t know them.”
