South African Minister of Police, General Bheki Cele has dismissed as false the statements attributed to him that the murder docket of the slain Bafana Bafana star Senzo Meyiwa is missing.
Media was awash with reports and video of the Minister allegedly saying he does not know where the docket is.
Meyiwa was slain at Kelly Khumalo’s house and the matter has not been solved and no arrest done.
Read the full statement below:
Minister Cele would like to put in on record that such media reports are not only false but reckless and hurtful to the Meyiwa family and the rest of the South African republic who want to see justice served in this case.
In an interview on 06 November 2019 with various media houses in Durban, the Minister was questioned about the whereabouts of the case docket in the Senzo Meyiwa murder case. Cele responded by saying “I believe the docket is supposed to be with the prosecution, but I will have to confirm that.” The General further went on to say “I know and I’m satisfied that the police have done a good job.”
While many of the media houses present during the exchange reported on the facts, it is unfortunate that some chose to deviate from the truth and create unnecessary panic by reporting on incorrect information.
Minister Cele would like to make it clear the case docket into the murder of Senzo Meyiwa is not missing. It is currently with the South African Police Service.
