The NPA has confirmed that a man appeared in the Boksburg Magistrate’s Court on Friday in connection with the murder of Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa.
“The man, Zanokuhle Mbatha… is facing a charge of murder and robbery of Mr Senzo Meyiwa,” National Prosecuting Authority spokesman Nathi Mncube said.
“He will appear in court again on November 11 for a formal application for legal aid.”
Mncube said he did not know when the man was arrested. Meyiwa, who was also the Orlando Pirates captain, was killed when two attackers entered his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s house around 8pm on Sunday.
They apparently demanded cellphones and money. One cellphone was stolen. The men then fled the scene on foot. SAPA
