Senzo Meyiwa's brother: Police have the wrong suspects

Senzo Meyiwa's brother Sifiso says he's convinced the team of investigators in charge of his brother's case is only there to suppress the probe. He was speaking outside Court in Palm Ridge, where the murder case was postponed on Monday morning. Five suspects were arrested in October last year for killing Meyiwa.

Sifiso Meyiwa says he had other expectations for Monday's proceedings.

"Even the minister knows, this team that arrested these was not brought in to solve the case.

"There's a case that was selected by the police minister Bheki Cele in 2018 or 2019, when they were about to make an arrest and then this team, appointed by the national commissioner Khehla Sitole, came."

"The minister asked them how they ended up as part of the team, they said they were brought in to assist. When they came in, Cele's team was ready with the real docket and the real evidence. Cele's team was about to make an arrest, Sitole's team jumped in and told us they had confessions," he said.

"They ran to Pietermaritzburg and told us there was someone who wanted to make a confession, where is he? He's not even among the accused. We were told of many people that were supposedly going to make confessions but they're not here. This shows perfectly that this is a lie, it's all made up.

"Even these suspects we know they get a beating in jail to admit to killing Senzo. Their families were promised money. The cops are lying."

 Senzo Meyiwa's trial will begin in April next year.
