Chicco Twala has expressed relief that his son Longwe was not among the five arrested for Senzo Meyiwa's murder. The veteran music producer has now expressed his desire to meet with the Meyiwa family, according to reports.
Speaking to News24, the businessman said that Longwe was wrongfully accused by the public and he was relieved that his son has now been vindicated. There was growing speculation that Longwe was somehow involved in the shooting of the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper as he was present at the home of Kelly Khumalo on that fateful day.
Adding fuel to the fire were the subsequent reports by Meyiwa's cousin, Sifiso, that Longwe pulled the trigger.
Chicco Twala has expressed his desire to meet with Meyiwas, particularly Senzo's mother. He, however, did not go into detail about why he wished to meet her.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za sat down with Senzo Meyiwa's mother, who shared her thoughts about the arrests. The grieving mother opened up about her thoughts on the developing situation.
“Six years ago I lost a child, but today I feel like he’s risen from the grave. It’s a bitter-sweet moment for me and the entire Meyiwa family.”
The news of the arrests came while the nation and football fanatics’ commemorated the sixth anniversary since the former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper was murdered. He was shot at the home of his ex-lover and baby mama, songstress Kelly Khumalo in Vosloorus. He subsequently died in hospital.
“I have lived with excruciating pain, a wound that has not healed six years after the death of Senzo. What made it even more painful is the fact that his killers were not arrested. I cannot even begin to describe the pain that I’ve suffered for the past six years,” Ntombufuthi told Briefly.co.za, sighing heavily between her words.
Ntombifuthi said she wished her husband, Meyiwa’s father, Sam, was still alive to witness justice being served.
“That’s why I say It’s a bitter-sweet moment for us as the family because his father, who had fought to see justice being served, is no longer around to witness this day,” she said.
