“It could have destroyed anybody, that one. But not him — as if God was saying I’m going to recall this man.”
Khoza said what is being reported in the media has not helped clear the confusion as to what happened when Meyiwa was murdered.
“It’s unfortunate what has happened in terms of what we’re consuming. It’s confusing to all of us.
“We’re asking ourselves, what is it that we don’t know that has taken place to create this sort of confusion from the police to the Hawks, the witnesses, neighbours and the people who were in the house? It’s just confusing.
“I don’t think we deserve that sort of treatment because he was a gentleman and unfortunately it happened at the time he was the captain of my team, captain of the national team.”
Khoza, also chair of the Premier Soccer League, recalled that when Pirates signed Meyiwa he was 13 years old. Khoza said it pained the Bucs owner that he had to return him to his home in Umlazi, south of Durban, when he was no more.
