The trip was a painful journey, as many saluted and said their last goodbyes to a sporting legend.Thousands of Orlando Pirates supporters were there, as well as the Meyiwa family and dignities, all bidding farewell to a young man at the height of his career.Mr Mofokeng shared a memorable experience the day before the tragic shooting (Saturday, October 25) when he had the opportunity to have a chat with Senzo. This was at the last game he played against Ajax in Cape Town. “Senzo will be dearly missed. A young man was robbed of his life at an early age. Not only is it a loss to his family, but to Pirates fans countrywide.” WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsitelast_img
