The information caused an outrage as the user revealed detailed information, including the names of individuals alleged to have been implicated in the soccer star’s death.
The information revealed by the twitter account claimed that Senzo was killed by one person among those who were in the house with him, not by robbers as it was initially reported.
Senzo was murdered in October of 2014 at his girlfriend’s house in Vosloorus.
The information disclosed by the twitter account has since gained attention with social media users calling on the police to act on the matter.
Meanwhile, Senzo’s father Samuel Meyiwa described Senzo’s murder case as a disgrace and lambasted police for not doing enough to search for his son’s killers three years after his death.
Speaking to eNCA, Meyiwa called on the police to act on these allegations that have been revealed.
“Even the one who shot Senzo is known. I noticed on social networks everything that happened there [in the house], people who were in the house know everything that happened but they don’t talk, they don’t want to talk,” he said.
