New revelations have emerged in the ongoing trial of the five men accused of killing Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa in 2014. Cellphone analyst Lambertus Steyn testified that call records indicate a series of communication between the accused leading up to the murder, despite some of them claiming they had never met before facing charges.
The court heard that a phone number linked to accused number five, Fisokuhle Ntuli, made multiple calls to the other accused prior to the tragic incident in Vosloorus.
The murder of Senzo Meyiwa in 2014 has remained unsolved for years, but recent developments in the trial shed new light on the case. The South African soccer star was fatally shot in what is believed to have been a botched robbery.
However, cellphone evidence now suggests that the accused were in communication before the incident, casting doubt on their claims of unfamiliarity with one another. The revelation by Steyn, the State’s fourth witness in the trial, adds complexity to the legal proceedings and may potentially impact the final verdict.
The focus of the trial has turned to the call records that allegedly link the five accused individuals. According to Steyn’s testimony, a phone registered to Fisokuhle Ntuli was involved in multiple calls to the phones of the other accused leading up to Meyiwa’s murder.
This finding contradicts the accused’s assertions that they were not acquainted prior to facing charges. As the trial progresses, the court will delve further into the call records and their implications, hoping to find the truth behind the tragic killing that has gripped the nation for years.
