Chicco Twala & his suspected son Longwe meet Senzo Meyiwa’s family as the murder case heats up

Senzo Meyiwa and Kelly Khumalo

Veteran musician Chicco Twala and his son Longwe have expressed a desire to satisfy Senzo Meyiwa’s family, particularly the late goalkeeper’s mother.

Speaking to an area online publication, Chicco said he and Longwe were wrongfully persecuted by many of us who believed his son had a hand in the murder of Senzo Meyiwa. The Twala family feels that the arrest of 5 suspects in reference to the murder of Senzo Meyiwa has vindicated them.

A section of South Africans concluded that Longwe was involved in the murder of Senzo Meyiwa because he was also at the house of musician and actress Kelly Khumalo in East Rand when Meyiwa was shot. The speculation was compounded by the very fact that his cousin, Sifiso said Longwe was the one who pulled the trigger of the gun that shot and killed the Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper in 2014.

Chicco Twala said that his son feels vindicated following the arrest of 5 suspects. He said that claims his son was liable for Meyiwa’s death were created on social media. He said that he would really like to satisfy with the Meyiwa family especially Senzo’s mother. Chicco added that the reports that Longwe had killed and shot Meyiwa had caused confusion for both families involved.

The five suspects were arrested on Monday in KwaZulu-Natal. Police Minister Bheki Cele assured South Africans that police had a watertight case against the suspects. National commissioner General Khehla Sitole said that that they had arrested the proper people this point. He added that the suspects were linked to the case through forensic evidence, also because the gun that police believe was wont to kill Meyiwa.
