Speaking about how hurt he truly is about his death, Khune says he’s disheartened that the late Orlando Pirates goalkeeper lost his life without having achieved most of the items he wanted to realize in life.

“I was so pleased with him. He had been expecting his opportunity to return. He took over Bafana Bafana, played well and qualified for Afcon. Those were our childhood dreams. a number of what we shared as childhood dreams, we managed to check all the boxes. To lose him was heartbreaking because I knew we had not accomplished everything we set for ourselves,” he said.

“My friendship with Senzo started an extended time ago. From a young age we had big dreams. We wanted to be favorite in our teams. I remember i used to be promoted first and he congratulated me with KFC Streetwise Two. Two months later he was promoted and that i also bought him KFC to congratulate him.

We were very young but we were determined. We wanted to travel far in our careers. We gave coaches a headache because they didn’t know who to settle on between the 2 folks . That’s how competitive we were,” said Khune. “When he gave up the ghost he had not accomplished what we dreamt of. With those words I hope we get justice very soon,” he said quoted by Daily Sun.

The six-year ongoing murder court case on Senzo Meyiwa captured headlines because it seemed that there was finally a breakthrough. News outlets wrote about how five suspects were arrested. The five suspects were imagined to be hitmen hired by a “mastermind” to finish Meyiwa’s life.

However, the thrill quickly came to an end when the suspects made their introduction at court. First, the suspects wouldn’t step into the pulpit. Secondly, they revealed ahead of the media that they didn’t know why they were arrested by suggesting that they were already in jail in 2014.
