Soweto Mandlanzi, the author of the book, Decoding 666-9: The inexplicable life of Senzo Meyiwa, says he is receiving death threats since he started working on the book.

Mandlanzi says he had the blessings of Senzo Meyiwa’s late father Sam to write the book.

The former Bafana Bafana captain and goalkeeper was killed at the home of his then-girlfriend Kelly Khumalo in Vosloorus, Gauteng, in October 2014.

Mandlanzi says his intention to write the book was to help the Meyiwa family.

“To be honest I don’t feel safe anymore, emanating from the fact that people had already had preconceived ideas. There have been a lot of comments like I have exposed the killers either directly or indirectly, that I had a specific agenda.”

Mandlanzi expressed that the threats came from as far back as 2016.

“I have been consistently receiving threats and in 2016, 2017 it was calls and messages, 2018 it was face to face. A man I did not know just came and said I must stop working on this Senzo Meyiwa project. My intention is to assist the Meyiwa Family, to be comforted and to find a way to put bread on the table,” says Mandlanzi.

Mandlanzi’s revelations come after Police Minister Bheki Cele, in November last year refuted reports that the case docket into Senzo Meyiwa’s murder is missing.

Cele highlighted that the docket is currently with the South African Police Service (SAPS). The Minister noted with concern the false statements attributed to him that the murder docket of Senzo Meyiwa is missing.
