A KwaZulu-Natal sangoma, 69, has confessed that he is the one who gave Senzo Meyiwa’s alleged killers some muthi, before and after the murder.
The sangoma, who spoke to City Press said that he now fears for his life.
He said he was interrogated by police earlier this year and told them what he knew.
He told City Press that back in 2014, three men came to his house and asked for muthi after they told him they were feuding with a business rival.
The sangoma gave then Intelezi to use for bathing rituals and he was paid R50 000 for his services.
He said after a few days, they came back to him told him they wanted to be cleansed as they had killed someone.
He says he only realised that the men murdered Senzo Meyiwa after he recently found one of the men who had consulted with him in 2014, at the police station when he was taken in for questioning.
Intelezo is used to protect warriors in battle and is believed to protect people from gunshots.
This year 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, lbut 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,”
