A police officer is expected to be the first witness to take the stand in the Senzo Meyiwa’s murder trial today.

The late Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper was killed while visiting his then girlfriend songstress Kelly Khumalo in Vosloorus.

The trial began on Friday with five accused being formally charged.

The group pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, attempted murder, robbery with aggravated circumstances and possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition.


The police officer will provide ballistic evidence and according to the state two intruders armed with a firearm and knife entered the home and demanded cellphones and valuables.

They allege that three shots were fired, with one hitting the floor, another struck Kelly Khumalo’s sister Zandile while another hit Meyiwa in the chest.

The state is expected to call atleast 15 to 20 witnesses.
