The posthumous sagas around Senzo Meyiwa would make a film of their own, but the goalkeeper, who had just claimed the #1 Bafana Bafana jersey, had become a child of the nation by the time he was slain.
A strong actor such as Abdul Khoza would be up to the task of portraying Senzo in an emotional sports biopic.

Bonus: Winnie Mandela
Along with Brenda Fassie, the role of Winnie Mandela is probably the most coveted by South African actors right now.
A long-time favourite, Nomzamo Mbatha would be the perfect woman to play the role of one of Mzansi’s most important struggle icons.
