Re-examination of Tumelo Madlala in Senzo Meyiwa case

The Senzo Meyiwa Murder Trial will resume in the High Court in Pretoria with the re-examination of a state witness, Tumelo Madlala. The defence wrapped up its cross-examination yesterday. Madlala accused a senior officer in the murder case, Colonel Joyce Buthelezi, of being a liar. Buthelezi was part of a team that investigated the slain football star’s murder and recommended the prosecution of the people who were inside the house at the time Meyiwa was shot during an alleged robbery at the home of the mother of his then-girlfriend Kelly Khumalo in Vosloorus in 2014. Madlala accused Buthelezi of placing him under a witness protection programme to influence him to change his version of events on the shooting.
