Even though things started off on a very slow foot with the court adjourning twice already before 1pm, however there may have been a light at the end of the tunnel. According to the Sunday World, the court heard that it was Chicco Twala's son, Longer Twala who shot and killed Senzi Meyiwa and ran off.

"A statement approved by Tumelo Madlala suggests that Longwe, the son of musician Chicco Twala, killed Senzo Meyiwa and ran off. This damning evidence was revealed by the defence counsel for accused number one to four, Timothy Thobane, during the cross-examination of Madlala at the high court in Pretoria on Monday" wrote Sunday World

Tumelo Madlala who first took the stand in September to provide his testimony, as one of the witnesses who were present the day Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa was shot at his girlfriend's home in Vooslorus in 2014.

Although Tumelo Madlala has neither agreed nor denied what was recorded on the statement and read to him. However, the court heard that Madlala was in no position to divulge whether Longwe Twala was the one who pulled the trigger, suggesting that he did not see Twala with a gun.

However, Madlala could only confirm that shortly after the shooting, Twala fled the scene instead.

“I was for the first time to see Longwe Twala, and I did not tell anyone or the Meyiwa family that Senzo was killed by Longwe Twala, because he did not have a firearm with him, instead he ran away.” read the statement

While Madlala's testimony initially left Mzansi in disbelief, as they felt as though that Madlala was on the defense mode the entire time, by evading almost every question posed to him rather than giving his testimony.

"Thobane asked Madlala to explain what made him to put this in writing, to which Madlala said the statement was written by a police officer. Madlala said he only answered the questions and the officer penned the statement. This despite having agreed before giving his response that indeed he signed and approved all his statements" wrote Sunday World
