Nota Baloyi drops a bombshell on Senzo Meyiwa’s death.lt’s been over seven years since Senzo Meyiwa was murdered and the person or people responsible for his untimely death have not been apprehended. Over the years since his murder the police have gotten leads specially around the time of his death which do not seem to hold as they always fizzle away.
However this time as we near the time of his death yet again the police have someone in custody whom they have linked to Meyiwa’s death. It was reported this week that a 32 year old KwaZulu Natal Hitman is a person of interest in the murder investigation. He has been implicated in Senzo’s murder and has been convicted on six counts of murder.
The hitman appeared in the Esikhaleni regional court in northern KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday for sentencing. He was then convicted on six counts of murder, one attempted murder charge and four counts of being in possession of unlawful firearms and ammunition a day earlier. One of the cases he was charged with was Senzo Meyiwa’s death.
Brig Vishnu Naidoo, the national police spokesperson said that Ntuli is among the accused in the Senzo murder case.
“He is charged separately in the matter of Senzo Meyiwa. He is accused [number] five in that matter.”
We hope that this time the case holds and someone pays for his death and that it is the right person. Nhlamulo “Nota” Baloyi has expressed how devastated he is that Senzo’s case has not been closed. He went on to say that he did have a talk with Senzo the day he died, the reason why he broke his silence was because of the recent developments in the case which puts KwaZulu-Natal hitman Fisokuhle Ntuli as the man who pulled the trigger.
Senzo Meyiwa died in October 2014 and since then Baloyi kept it to himself that he had spoken to him before he died he said;
“I spoke to Senzo Meyiwa the day he was killed. We were at Dorothy Nyembe Park at a CanDo concert. We weren’t getting paid for that show but there was an entire tour and we wanted in on it. His baby mamma was on stage and I stood with him to watch and chat as we were going up next,” he wrote.
He went on to note that he was saddened by the fact that his murder had not yet been resolved.
“It’s been almost seven years and I’m still triggered by the unsolved case. The fact that police are investigating a hit but no mastermind has been arrested proves to me the life of a black man has no value. You could captain Pirates and Bafana Bafana and still die like a dog,” he wrote.
