Senzo Meyiwa: South Africa's Captain's Funeral Attended By Tens Of Thousands...

Share This

Meyiwa, 27, was shot on Sunday, apparently after burglars entered his girlfriend's house near Johannesburg. A suspect appeared in court on Friday and was charged with the murder of the popular goalkeeper. Meyiwa's death shocked South Africa and has highlighted the high rates of violent crime in the country.

The funeral took place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Meyiwa's hometown of Durban which was well attended by Tens Of Thousands Of People. Many of the mourners were wearing T-shirts with a picture of Meyiwa, who was widely seen as an inspiring figure. Others wore red or black replica football shirts in the colours of Meyiwa's team, Orlando Pirates.



Meyiwa's coffin was driven into the stadium, followed by Orlando Pirates players and officials. Mourners cried as videos were played showing Meyiwa training and playing football.
