Sam claps back at Kelly again
Two years after Senzo’s death, Sam and Kelly squared off again after Kelly’s media comments struck a painful chord in Sam’s heart.
He retorted at the time; “She has recently said that being in love with Senzo had been a waste of her time. How does she dare speak so ill of my child who died?”

Sam demands answers
Weeks turned into months and months turned into years, but South Africans were still no closer to learning who killed their beloved goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa.
Sam echoed the nation’s sentiments when he said, “It’s really frustrating for us that after so many years we still don’t know who killed him and why. This makes me wonder about my son’s killers. They must be wealthy and well-connected to be able to hide the truth so well and for so long.” Any guesses who he was hinting at?
