AfriForum to assist Meyiwa family on pro bono basis, Gerrie Nel to investigate

Lobby group AfriForum has announced it will investigate the murder of former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa.

Meyiwa was murdered in 2014 but no progress had been made in the murder investigation.

AfriForum says Gerrie Nel would act as the advocate for the family in the investigation.

Speaking to Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show, AfriForum CEO Kallie Kriel says they are calling on people with information to come forward.
