On Tuesday Siyabonga Miya the cousin of slain Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa told Newzroom Afrika that he believes Longwe Twala shot and killed his cousin.

He also said the police know who killed Senzo Meyiwa but they are not making arrests because they would have to arrest one of their own for defeating the ends of justice.

Renowned music producer, Chicco Twala who is the father of Longwe said Miya must reveal the truth to the police and if it’s his son who killed Senzo then Longwe must be arrested.

Twala told Newzroom Afrika that his accused son is at the rehab center where he is being assisted with his drug problems.


The musician added that police must take action if it’s really his son who killed Senzo Meyiwa. He urged South Africans not to use social media to destroy one another.

He also revealed that Longwe does not own a gun. Chicco said this new story doesn’t make any sense because if it was Longwe who killed Senzo then he would have tried to skip the country.

In addition to the above, Twala said social media was being used to tarnish his family. He said his son’s relationship with Zandi was still new at the time of the shooting.

With that said, Twala went further to say the new lovers never fought and that Longwe is not a violent person but a drug addict.

He also said he believes that his son would never commit such a crime.

Twala concluded by saying the police took his gun only to return it after two months because the gun had not been used at the crime scene.
