Reading Time: < 1 minute

The family of the late Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa says it is hoping his murder trial will finally start on April 22.

The trial has been postponed yet again in North Gauteng High Court after the lawyer for one of the accused asked for it to stand down to allow them to further prepare for the case.

Five men are on trial for allegedly orchestrating the murder of the football star.

Meyiwa was killed in Vosloorus, east of Johannesburg, almost eight years ago. His cousin, Nomalanga Meyiwa says all the family wants is closure.

“We are hoping as the judge said that we also have rights as a family, we are hoping that on the 22nd when we come back as the judge promised, this is the last postponement he will accept. We are hoping we will come back to finalise so we can also have closure as a family. We want the matter to be out at rest. We want to live our lives freely and for life to go on at home,” adds Nomalanga Meyiwa.
