Neither Safa nor the home club of slain Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain Senzo Meyiwa were able to provide clarity on a report that he had lied about his age.
The shocking truth came out after Senzo’s father, Sam Meyiwa, allegedly removed the tombstone from the grave of the famous goalie’s twin brother Siya, who died in 1993.
He did so because the tombstone had his twin sons’ date of birth engraved on it: 24 January 1984.
This was proof that Senzo was older than 30 years of age when he died. But he gave his age as 27!
Today, SA Football Association spokesperson Dominic Chimhavi said that records of the players were filed at club level.
“Nothing has been brought to us for us to comment on that issue”.
Orlando Pirates administrator Floyd Mbele said the club had a copy of Meyiwa’s ID but their records could only be accessed tomorrow.
