Accused Number One Confessed To Senzo Meyiwa’s Murder, Court Hears

During the search, Sergeant Sadiki discovered ammunition, a magazine, and a cleaning rod in a black plastic bag, which Sibiya confirmed belonged to him.

In the ongoing Senzo Meyiwa murder trial at the Pretoria High Court, a new witness testified yesterday that accused number one confessed to the soccer star’s murder just a few hours after his arrest.

Sergeant Bathobakae Mogola, who is attached to the cold case investigation unit under Brigadier Bongani Gininda, took the court through the events of May 30, 2020, when the accused, Muzikawukhulelwa Sibiya, was apprehended.

Mogola revealed that she was assigned the case by Gininda in 2019 and a warrant of arrest was issued for Sibiya in December of that year.

In May 2020, she received information that the suspect had been spotted in Tembisa, prompting her to contact Constable Buthelezi from the EMPD SWAT Unit for assistance with the arrest.

On the day of the arrest, Mogola and the other officers approached the location where Sibiya was believed to be. She identified him among a group of males and, after the arrest, they proceeded to Sibiya’s shack in Tembisa to search for his identification.

During the search, Sergeant Sadiki discovered ammunition, a magazine, and a cleaning rod in a black plastic bag, which Sibiya confirmed belonged to him.

It was during this time that Mogola questioned Sibiya about his involvement in Senzo Meyiwa’s murder. According to Mogola’s testimony, Sibiya made admissions and continued to provide information even after being reminded of his constitutional rights.
