Police minister Bheki Cele confirmed the suspects were arrested in Gauteng.
Today marks six years since Meyiwa was gunned down at his girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo’s mother’s home in 2014.
Police Minister Bheki Cele said that the five suspects arrested in connection with the killing of Bafana Bafana Captain Senzo Meyiwa would appear in the Boksburg Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
Cele and National Police Commissioner Khehla Sithole gave an update on the protracted murder case of the former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain.
Cele said that the five arrests were made on Monday morning in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.
“These arrests are a result of a multi-disciplinary integrated approach to this investigation, which is working closely with the director of public prosecutions,” Cele said.
“The South African Police Service (SAPS) and the prosecution team are confident that we have a watertight case against all five suspects,” he added.
It has been six years to the day since Meyiwa was murdered at the Vosloorus home of his then-girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s mother.
Just last week, it was leaked to the media that a gun allegedly linked to the killing had been found.
Cele condemned these leaks saying it interfered with the work of investigating officers.
“Moving forward the investigation team will be considering opening cases of defeating the ends of justice to ensure that such leaks never occur again. Despite this interference, the cold case team perseveres,” he said.
