Senzo Meyiwa's life policy released with strict conditions

Orlando Pirates and PSL chairman, Dr. Irvin Khoza, has announced that the R4 million life policy on murdered Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain, Senzo Meyiwa, will be paid out.

According to the contractual terms, 50% should go to the family, and the other 50% to Orlando Pirates.

But, people have questioned why the club is receiving half of the money, while it's the family that has been largely affected by Meyiwa's death.

Xolani Gwala seeks clarity from Morena Mothupi, EWN reporter, who has been following the story.

Listen to the conversation below...

The contract stipulates that 50% goes the club. There is no spouse that can benefit from this, it's only the three children that Senzo Meyiwa had.

But the principle in this case doesn't apply, as the chairman said that it will be their contribution to the family because of the services rendered by Senzo Meyiwa to the level that he did. The contract says 50% Orlando Pirates but Orlando Pirates goes to the family.
