Thabang Makeleni, who in 2014 was a student living in Vosloorus, not far from singer Kelly Khumalo’s mother’s home, was poisoned late last year, a few months after he made a deposition to new investigators in which he linked the five suspects, currently charged for the murder of Meyiwa, to the scene.
National police spokesperson Vish Naidoo confirmed that a witness in the Meyiwa case died of poisoning.
Makeleni died while visiting his girlfriend. Those close to him revealed that he was found dead in another room in the house, while his girlfriend slept in a different room.
“This on its own raises questions. How do you visit your girlfriend and you sleep in different rooms. Something is fishy,”
