S.Africa police release identikits of football captain killers

28 October 2014, 17:30

Johannesburg - South African police on Tuesday released the facial composites of two men wanted for shooting dead national football captain Senzo Meyiwa, during a robbery at his pop-star girlfriend's home.

The twenty-seven-year-old goalkeeper was killed late Sunday after burglars broke into Kelly Khumalo's house near Johannesburg, making off with a cell phone.

No arrests have yet been made, but police have launched a manhunt and released sketches recreated from eyewitness descriptions of one dreadlocked man and another with a hoodie.

Police have offered a reward of 250,000 rand ($23,000) for any information leading to his killer's arrest.

Police have appointed high-ranking officers to their own investigation team.

A star ballistic witness for the state in the Oscar Pistorius case, captain Chris Mangena, is among the officers investigating the killing of the Bafana Bafana captain.

Local media reported that Meyiwa's family have hired private investigators to conduct a parallel probe of the death.

Meyiwa was gunned down after an altercation with the burglars at a house in Vosloorus, a township about 30 kilometres (20 miles) south of Johannesburg.

He will be buried on Saturday in his home town in Durban.
