President Cyril Ramaphosa has welcomed the arrest of five people implicated in the 2014 murder of soccer player Senzo Meyiwa. As they appear in Court today.

The police ministry on Monday announced the arrest of the five, which coincidentally fell on the sixth-year anniversary of Meyiwa’s slaying.

“Today is a day on which we revisit the sadness that affected millions of us as South Africans when we lost Senzo Meyiwa in 2014,” Ramaphosa said.

But this anniversary is mitigated by the arrest of five suspects who have been unable to escape the reach of the law, regardless of the passage of time.

“We congratulate the police for their hard work and persistence. We must now allow the criminal justice system and the judiciary to do their work and handle this matter to finality.”

Meyiwa, who was a goalkeeper for the national soccer squad, Bafana Bafana, as well as for Orlando Pirates, was gunned down in Vosloorus at the home of his girlfriend, musician Kelly Khumalo.

Present at the time were Khumalo, her mother Ntombi, sister Zandi, Zandi’s boyfriend Longwe Twala, his friends Mthokozisi Twala and Tumelo Madlala, and their son, who was four years old at the time.
