 27 October 2014.

The Inkatha Freedom Party sends its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain Senzo Meyiwa. 

IFP spokesperson on Sport, Mr Petros Sithole, MP said, "The whole country woke up to the devastating news that Senzo Meyiwa had been fatally shot and killed by unknown assailants. He was a man who represented both his club and country with excellence. He was the number one goalkeeper and captain of Orlando Pirates and also Bafana Bafana" 

"As a nation, we must take a stand against violent crime, because it affects us all. The death of Meyiwa unfortunately highlights how our communities continually live in fear of their lives. Communities and the police need to work hand in hand to stop such tragedies from occurring and to bring criminals to book. Rewards for information leading to criminal arrests and prosecutions should be a consistent part community and police relations" 

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, the nation and his club family, Orlando Pirates at this time" said Sithole
