South African police have dispelled recent reports making the rounds about an arrest made in the case of murdered Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa.
National police spokesperson Vish Naidoo said: “No, that’s fake news. It’s not true. If there is a significant development in the case, we will make the announcement. People mustn’t be consumed by this fake news,” said Naidoo
Social media was abuzz on Monday with claims Longwe Twala, son of music mogul Chicco Twala, was arrested over the murder of the deceased. Meyiwa’s girlfriend, musician Kelly Khumalo, her sister Zandile and their mother allegedly knew Twala was the killer.
Meyiwa was shot dead in October 2014 at his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s house in Vosloorus. No arrest has been made to date.
