It’s exactly seven years since Meyiwa was gunned down at singer Kelly Khumalo’s home in Vosloorus.

The two – Meyiwa and Khumalo – were in a romantic relationship at the time of the goalkeeper’s passing in 2014.

A number of arrests have been made since then but the police haven’t been able to fully crack the case as they have struggled to get solid evidence in their investigation.
