Johannesburg – The murder trial of Senzo Meyiwa is expected to resume on Monday.
Five suspects, accused of the murder of Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa in 2014 have pleaded not guilty to all charges.
The last sitting ended in a dramatic manner when the lawyer representing four of the accused was arrested and handcuffed right inside the court.
Advocate Malesela Teffo had just told the judge that they were receiving threats minutes before the court adjourned.
In addition, a police officer whose name came up a lot during cross-examination of witness number one passed away.
However, the NPA says he was not a key state witness.
Another development was Kelly Khumalo’s lawyer, tasked with conducting a watching brief was excused from court after Advocate Teffo expressed being uncomfortable with her presence.
It has not been confirmed whether Khumalo and others who were present the night of Senzo Meyiwa’s killing will be called in to testify.
