- The wife of Lindani Myeni, Lindsay, has shared a heartwrenching video to her YouTube account about her late husband
- Lindsay spoke about her husband, who was killed by police officers in Hawaii, and how his death has impacted her life
- A visibly distraught Lindsay tried her best to keep her calm throughout the painful video in order to raise awareness
The wife of slain South African father Lindani Myeni has been documenting her days since his death. In a video shared to YouTube, Lindsay Myeni speaks about the type of person her husband was.
Lindsay recalled the day her husband was killed by police officers and the pain she has been going through in the days after. The mother of two spoke about how if the roles were reversed between her and her husband, he would still be here today. She said:
"My worst nightmare has come true. We were always scared of cops in America regarding Lindani. People always treat him like he's a weapon, even just regular people."
"Just because you're strong, just because you have a fit body means you're dangerous because you're black. People will capitalise off of it if they can."
A tearful Lindsay posed a striking question about the Hawaiin police officers having weapons while her husband was unarmed:
"He's unarmed. You're literally afraid of his arms. You cowards. I just don't get it."
Take a look at her YouTube video below:
Briefly News recently reported that a close friend of Lindani's started a GoFundMe campaign in order to raise money to bring Myeni's remains back home to South Africa. On the page, the young man describes Myeni as gentle, strong and healthy. He also appeals to people to offer what they can to get Myeni and his family to SA.
Briefly News earlier reported Myeni had been shot and killed by American police officers in Hawaii, where he lived with his wife and two kids, last Wednesday.
Social media users are demanding #JusticeForLindaniMyeni. The reports that the rugby player attacked police officers and drove them to use deadly force were met with disbelief by those who knew him.
