Police Must Arrest Senzo Meyiwa’s Killers

The IFP is once again calling on the police to leave no stone unturned in their search for Senzo Meyiwa’s killers.

“At the time of Meyiwa’s death promises were made that the police will work around the clock to bring his killers to book. This has not happened to date and as a nation we cannot go on having killers on the loose. We cannot tolerate such a mundane, slow paced response from our police not matter who is killed or harmed in society,” said IFP National Chairperson, Mr Blessed Gwala.

“South African need answers from the police about who killed Senzo Meyiwa. His family and relatives also want to know the circumstances surrounding his killing. We want closure in this matter, but this will only happen when the police arrest those responsible and they are convicted in a court of law,” continued Mr Gwala.

“We have concerns about every investigation. We want police officers to be thorough and conduct proper investigations. Justice and democracy should not only be for those who are in power and those who are very close to certain leaders in government. The police must account for why they arrested the wrong person and tell the people of this country who killed Senzo,” concluded Mr Gwala.

The IFP demands that once the criminals are arrested they must be denied bail and they must not be granted parole if they are found to be guilty. Such people have no place in society.
