NPA Decides To Proceed With Second Docket In Senzo Meyiwa Trial

In the Senzo Meyiwa trial, the National Prosecuting Authority has reversed course and is now willing to consider prosecuting the defendants in the controversial second docket.

The defendants in the second docket are those who were present in the home at the time Meyiwa was killed. At the residence of his girlfriend, singer Kelly Khumalo, the Bafana Bafana captain was shot and killed in October 2014.

In the Pretoria High Court, five men are on trial for his slaughtering. The NPA responded by dismissing the second docket, claiming it had been consolidated by a junior advocate and lacked merit, when the attorney for four of the accused presented it to the court.

But now, in a shocking turn of events, the NPA has reversed the decision. “The Gauteng divison has been given mandate to decide on the second docket. It is now being transfered from the Gauteng local divison” spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana.

In the second docket, murder charges are brought against Kelly Khumalo, her mother Gladness, sister Zandile, her ex-boyfriend Longwe Twala, and two of Meyiwa’s friends.

Maggie Phiri, a Khumalo neighbor, is charged with obstruction of justice for allegedly cleaning up the crime scene after Meyiwa was shot.

The NPA stated that it won’t make a decision regarding their prosecution until the current trial comes to an end.
