POPULAR streaming service Netflix is set to premiere a new docu-series, titled Senzo: Murder of a Soccer Star.

According to the streaming platform, the five-part show will delve deeper into the murder of Senzo Meyiwa.

It will share insight into what transpired on the fateful night when he was gunned down in what was alleged to be a botched robbery in 2014.

According to the documentary producers, it features exclusive interviews with sports broadcaster Robert Marawa, former Hawks head Shadrack Sibiya, Advocate Gerrie Nel and Senzo’s family members, who will all provide an intimate look at both the life and death of the Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain.

Senzo was shot and killed in the house belonging to the mother of his girlfriend – popular singer Kelly Khumalo.

Six witnesses were at the scene, including some of his closest friends. Yet it is only now, eight years later, that the suspects – alleged hitmen for hire – are going on trial.

Produced by Storyscope and Real Eyes, the big question the documentary will seek to answer is: are the five suspects just a cover-up for something more sinister?

With the backing and participation of Senzo’s family as well as access to investigators and key witnesses, Senzo: Murder of a Soccer Star aims to unpack the truth behind the high-profile murder when it premieres on 7 April on Netflix.
