A KwaZulu-Natal traditional healer who gave three Senzo Meyiwa hitmen muthi, before and after murder now fears for his life.
The Inyanga who was interviewed by the police earlier this said he told them everything he knew.
“I was misled. They told me they needed muthi to protect their business and make them courageous”.
“They didn’t tell me they needed muthi to give them courage to kill Senzo Meyiwa”.
Speaking to City Press, He said that in 2014, Three men came to his house and asked for muthi saying they were feuding with a business rival.
He gave them Intelezi to use when bathing and as paid R5000 for his services.
Intelezi is used to protect warriors in battle and to protect people from gunshots.
After a few days, they came back and told him they wanted to be cleansed as they had killed someone.
He says he only realized that the men murdered Senzo Meyiwa after he found one of the men who had consulted with him in 2014 at the police station when he was taken in for questioning.
So far 5 suspects were arrested in connection to Senzo Meyiwa’s murder, with one of them a mine worker confessing that he is the one who pulled the trigger.
The suspect is reported to have said that it was not a robbery gone wrong, but it was a hit and that Senzo Meyiwa owed someone money and that person ordered the hit.
However, his family rubbished that theory, with his brother saying.
“I can tell you now that this is another diversion from the real killers of my brother. And as the family, no one has come to us with these revelations and these people called hitmen are faceless.
“Senzo belonged to the nation. We only produced him and handed over to the nation. So, I’m pretty sure we are not the only ones who are feeling the pain of not seeing justice being served,”
