VICTIM: Senzo Meyiwa during a 2014 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier match.
As the storm around the murder of South African football player and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa rages on social media, his father Sam said the family were hopeful that the truth would prevail one day.

At the weekend, the @AdvBarryRoux parody account caused a frenzy when the user tweeted information regarding the murder.

The user claimed Senzo was shot by someone who was in the house that day and not by robbers as previously claimed.

Senzo was shot on October 26, 2014 at singer Kelly Khumalo’s Vosloorus home.

Those present on the night were Khumalo, her son with Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye Christian, her mother Ntombi, sister Zandi, Longwe Twala (who is the son of renowned music producer Chicco Twala), Senzo, and his friends Tumelo Madlala and Mthokozisi Twala.

Following the shooting, it was reported that Chicco Twala’s gun was taken in for ballistic testing.

Asked about the gun, ballistic test results and whether it was returned to Twala, national police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo said: “We do not provide details of investigations as this may be potentially damaging to the investigation.”

The Star also contacted Twala to find out whether his gun was indeed taken for ballistic testing.

However, he refused to comment on the matter, saying he did not respond to “fake news”.

“If you are a professional journalist, you will know that it is a fake tweet. My son and I are alive and kicking,” he said.

Moments later, he sent an SMS saying: “How do I know the tweet was created by you so you can have something to write about? Your question shows some desperation.

“It’s okay you can use your power as a journalist to put my family’s life in danger.”

The Star also tried to get hold of Khumalo to get her comment on this series of tweets, but her publicist, Tankiso Makhene, said: “Kelly does not comment about Senzo.

“You can ask me about her music and I will give you comment.”

Police Minister Fikile Mbalula’s office yesterday reiterated that arrests would be made soon as investigations into Meyiwa’s death were continuing.

“As the minister said, the issue of Senzo Meyiwa is not off our radar. It is still part of the issue that the police are investigating,” said Mbalula’s spokesperson Vuyo Mhaga.

Yesterday, Sam Meyiwa said the family were still dealing with their loss.

“I think about my son’s murder every day. I think about it every minute and every second,” Meyiwa said.

“One day, God will help me and everything will be revealed. The truth will come out.

“The people who were present when my son was shot are causing me so much pain.

“They know who killed Senzo but are keeping quiet. Senzo was a breadwinner. He supported the family and now we are suffering,” Meyiwa said.

He said all those who were causing him pain would “suffer”.

“All we ever get (from the police) is promises but nothing happens,” Meyiwa said.

Zamokuhle Mbatha, who was arrested for the murder and was later released, is suing the police for wrongful arrest and detention.
