OUTRAGE OVER OF S. AFRICA NATIONAL SOCCER CAPTAIN'S DEATH

JOHANNESBURG, South  Africa – South Africa national soccer captain Senzo Meyiwa was gunned down at a house in Vosloorus, a township about 30 kilometres (20 miles) south of Johannesburg at around 8.00 pm (1800 GMT) Sunday.
“It is alleged that two suspects entered the house and confronted the occupants, while a third suspect was outside,” said Phiyega.
After an altercation “a shot was fired, the goalkeeper was hit in the upper body and was taken to hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival”.
One cell phone was taken and the three suspects fled on foot.
Police have launched a manhunt for the suspects, described as being in their late 20s and early 30s.
South Africa’s president yesterday led a shocked nation in voicing outrage at the murder of national football captain Senzo Meyiwa after the talismanic goalkeeper was shot dead during a home robbery.
Police said the 27-year-old was killed late yesterday after burglars broke in to the house of pop-star girlfriend Kelly Khumalo, making off with a cell phone.
More than 17,000 people were killed in South Africa last year, but the slaying of a popular sporting hero has stunned even this crime-weary nation.
Team-mates at his local club Orlando Pirates team-mates were sobbing and crying uncontrollably during today’s team meeting, according to club officials.
Tributes to Meyiwa flooded in from across the football world. FIFA president Sepp Blatter described Meyiwa’s killing as a “senseless, tragic loss”.
