Letsholonyane: Facing Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Meyiwa always a challenge


The public outcry following the Orlando Pirates’ goalkeeper’s death has been universal, and now ‘Yeye’ has joined in the praise of the national team captain.

“It is sad to hear such news, and it is even sadder that it had to happen to a person like him – one of the most humble persons/players I have ever come across,” the Kaizer Chiefs midfielder says.

“I was fortunate that I got to spend time with him at the last Bafana Bafana camp where we not only spoke about football, but personal stuff. He was a great listener and gave advice where needed.

“On the field we all know he did his job magnificently for his club and represented his country with pride.

“Senzo was a very good goalkeeper and facing him in the Kaizer Chiefs-Orlando Pirates Derby was always a challenge because he was very competitive. He never wanted to be on the losing side, but above all he was an entertainer who made the Derby fun and exciting.

“I am very fortunate to have known him personally. My deepest condolences to all who knew him.”
