The incomplete dream home that stands on a hill in Adams Mission, KwaZulu-Natal serves as a sad and painful reminder to residents of the area.
The partly constructed house was Senzo Meyiwa's and the plans of the home came to halt when he was fatally shot in 2014.
The place has since become a hangout spot for criminals and drug users who spend their time there gambling and making the neighbours uncomfortable and afraid.
IOL News reports that residents feel that the neglected 5-bedroom home serves only to give them pain.

They are calling for the place to be demolished.
Gogo Buyisile and her husband, Busani Makhanya are afraid of walking at night because of the unsavoury types that frequent the unfinished building.
"We want the house to be demolished because it harbours criminals. We are scared of walking at night, we do not feel safe."
Briefly.co.za gathered that a headman of the Traditional Authority of the Makhanya clan, Sipho Shozi, said the community has lodged complaints about the house.
