South Africa’s football captain and goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa has died after being shot. The incident reportedly happened at Meyiwa’s girlfriend’s house in Vosloorus, south of Johannesburg. The 27-year-old played for Orlando Pirates and had played in South Africa’s last four Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
On Saturday, he was in action for his club, when they progressed to the semi-finals of the South African League Cup.
According to the South African Police Service, two men had entered the house, around 20:00 (18:00 GMT), while a third man remained outside. All three fled after shots were fired, in what local media reports say was an attempted burglary.
A reward of about $14,000 has been offered for information leading to the suspects’ arrest. Meyiwa was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.
He started playing for Orlando Pirates, based in the Parktown district of Johannesburg, in 2005.
May his soul rest in peace!!!
