Former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa was fatally shot in October 2014 in Vosloorus, east of Johannesburg.
According to Teffo, Senzo's brother Sifiso knew about the “strategy” and that's why he said he wasn't worried about Teffo’s decision to quit the case mid-trial.
In an interview with Newzroom Afrika, Sifiso said the Meyiwa family was not worried about Teffo quitting.
“He told us about the harassment and we agreed he should take this decision. We are not worried because we know what will happen from now on. He is still on case 375, which is the one that has evidence.”
He said the family had a plan but would not share it publicly.
EFF leader Julius Malema labelled Teffo's decision to withdraw from the murder trial “disrespectful”, saying he was making it about himself.
“I am not sympathetic towards advocate Teffo. He is disrespectful and has made the case about him. That is why we are being asked about him and not about how the case is going,” said Malema.
