National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana told SowetanLIVE sister publication TimesLIVE that a decision was yet to be made on whether to prosecute or not.
“Yes, I can confirm that the dockets in the Senzo Meyiwa case were received by end August 2020 and the NPA is currently finalising the decision,” Mahanjana said.
Speaking to TimesLIVE on Tuesday, Meyiwa’s brother Sifiso said despite receiving regular updates from police, they were not aware of the reported developments in the case.
“They [police] last updated us a week ago but I can't get into the details of it because they said it might jeopardise the case. They have never mentioned anything about a gun being found,” said Sifiso.
Last year the family enlisted the help of AfriForum to get to the bottom of Meyiwa’s murder.
“They are working on the case, but they say there is nothing we can divulge at this stage,” Sifiso said.
Meyiwa was gunned down in what was described as a botched robbery in Volsoorus, east of Johannesburg, in the presence of his girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo, her mother Ntombi, sister Zandi, Zandi’s boyfriend Longwe Twala, his friends Mthokozisi Twala and Tumelo Madlala, and their son, who was four years old at the time.
National police spokesperson Vish Naidoo said police would communicate once there was a breakthrough in the case.
