Senzo Meyiwa’s childhood friend, Tumelo Madlala, has returned to the witness stand at the late former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper murder trial on Wednesday. He is expected to conclude his evidence.
Madlala is expected to continue giving details of what happened when during the time he says two intruders stormed into the house and demanded cell phones and money. He says the first intruder, who came in holding a gun was short, had dreadlocks, had a scotch hat on, and a brown or caramel jacket.
Once cross-examination commences Madlala is expected to explain who exactly pulled the trigger.
He has so far only told the court about a gun that was held by the first intruder, who at about the time of the gunshot was being assaulted by Kelly, Zandi, and Gladness Khumalo with his crutch.
Madlala has not yet told the court whether the second intruder had a gun with him.
Constantly exchanging deep stares with some accused, Madlala told the court at the sound of the gunshot he ran to the safety of one of the bedrooms and found Meyiwa laying on the floor of the sitting room between a couch and TV stand.
Longwe Twala (Zandi’s boyfriend at the time), Kelly Khumalo (Meyiwa’s girlfriend), Gladness Khumalo (owner of the house), Zandi Khumalo (Kelly’s sister), Tumelo Madlala (Meyiwa’s friend), and Mthokozisi Thwala (Meyiwa’s friend) were the people who were in the house when Meyiwa was shot and killed.
