Senzo's Dad Has Passed Away.

This morning, many woke up to the chilling news of the passing of Senzo Meyiwa's father,  Sam Meyiwa. He died after succumbing to the second stroke that he suffered in August last year. Reportedly Sam was a regular at one of Kwa Zulu Natal's biggest hospital, Prince Mshiyeni Memorial Hospital due to ill health which led to his death at home.

According to Daily Sun, Sam's health took an alarming knock after the death of his famous son Senzo Meyiwa, who was a prolific Orlando Pirates Goalkeeper. Senzo's death was truly a blow to the football fraternity but more especially his family. The Meyiwa family spokesperson, Sfiso Meyiwa revealed that Sam had not fully recovered from his first stroke but things took a nasty turn after the second stroke which led him to be hospitalized last month.

Whilst many regarded Sam as an attention seeker, others perceived his actions as pure inspiration because he diligently fought for his son's killers to be brought to book.

Below are just some of the warm condolences on Twitter.




Upon the appointment of Bheki Cele as minister of police this year. There were high hopes regarding the conclusion of Senzo Meyiwa's case hence the minister made a bold public announcement - stating that Senzo's case would be concluded in a matter of four days at the time.

Unfortunately, not much came out from this declaration by the minister. Sam even tried to rope in Minister Fikile Mbabula but even that attempt produced futile results.

Rest In Peace Mr. Meyiwa. His devotion to his son will always be remembered.
