Sam Meyiwa the father of late Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa has died in his home in uMlazi.
In 2018 August Sam Meyiwa was rushed to the Prince Mshiyeni Hospital after he suffered a stroke.
Mr Meyiwa was reportedly struggling to come to terms with the death of his son Senzo in 2014.
Senzo Meyiwa was gunned down at his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s parent’s house in Vosloorus on the 26 October 2014 during a robbery.
To this day the police are yet to bring the person or persons responsible for the murder to justice.
The Meyiwa family spokesperson Nathi Ngwwenya told TimesLive that “the family is still confused and shocked. He was in a very bad shape since he suffered a stroke. He never fully recovered. His wife is in a bad state and is still very shocked.”
Sam Meyiwa still had appeals for his son’s killers to be brought to justice and it is truly sad that he has passed away without witnessing that.
Condolences have also started pouring in on social media. Sam Meyiwa rest in peace.
