Given the woman’s statement and her assurance that she will be testifying in court with no media present, the public’s reaction to this incidence is predictably strong, and it is not surprising that this is the case. The general public has been quite outspoken about their ideas on social media, and the family has found the entire situation to be insulting because they believe they have been unfairly condemned before they have had the opportunity to defend themselves.
Despite the fact that numerous individuals have asserted that the family was involved in the terrible murder of Senzo Meyiwa, the family continues to maintain that they are innocent of the charges. However, it is up to the court to demonstrate either the family’s guilt or their innocence in this matter.
The attorney for the defense, Zandile Mshololo, cast doubt on the mental capacity of the first state witness, Tumelo Madlala, who claimed to have recognized the assailants who entered the house where player Senzo Meyiwa was shot dead. Madlala claimed to have seen the assailants through the front door.
The first witness to testify in the case against the five defendants is Meyiwa’s best friend Madlala. Madlala has been Meyiwa’s best friend for as long as anyone can remember. According to him, before the incident, they had been drinking and watching soccer before it happened.
Mshololo asserted that you were not in your right mind when you recognized the invader since you had been drinking prior to that moment.
Madlala stated that despite the fact that they had been drinking, he was not intoxicated because he was able to keep track of what was happening.
“Since we left to take Senzo to the hospital, I wasn’t there when it happened; as a result, I can’t dispute that,” Madlala explained.
The prosecutor told the witness, “You had been drinking at the time you made the identification of suspect No. 2,” which was an admission that the witness had consumed alcohol.
