The award-winning top cop who was probing the Senzo Meyiwa murder case has allegedly pulled out of the investigation.

Captain Joyce Buthelezi from the Hillbrow Family Violence and Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit – withdrew after the committee overseeing the probe allegedly rejected one of her key recommendations.


According to police insiders close to the case, Buthelezi had suggested that all the people who were in the house when the Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain was murdered be arrested and charged with perjury or for defeating the ends of justice.

This was because she believed the witnesses misled the police about what happened on the night the goalie was gunned down in what appeared to be an armed robbery at his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s house in Spruitview on the East Rand last October.
