Senzo Meyiwa Trial: Key Witness Objects To Live Broadcast Over Safety Concerns
The drama continues in the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial with a lawyer arguing against the live broadcast of the testimony because it might endanger the witness.
Yesterday, Monday, the witness, whose identity is yet to be revealed, objected to her testimony being broadcast live. She claimed she is not camera shy but that broadcasting the testimony live would put her at risk. And she doesn’t want that.
Senzo Meyiwa was shot dead in 2014 in what was alleged to be a robbery gone wrong. Since then, all attempts to unravel the mystery of his killing remain fruitless. The case had been postponed multiple times, with no end in sight yet for the trial and eventual unearthing of his killers.
The lack of leads so far and the endless court sittings are beginning to anger many South Africans, who believe that key witnesses in the case – those who were there when Senzo was killed – have not been forthcoming with the truth.
When Senzo Meyiwa died, his father vowed to fight to ensure he gets justice. Papa Meyiwa, unfortunately, died before his son’s killers could be unmasked. The trial continues. By the way, although a documentary has been made of the incident, it has still not solved the case.
