Netflix premiered Senzo: Murder of a Soccer Star, a five-part docu-series on Thursday.
Meyiwa was gunned down in singer Kelly Khumalo's mother's house in 2014; she was his girlfriend.
The tragic incident, which happened eight years ago, left questions both with his beloved friends, family and soccer fans as to what led to his untimely death.
It features renowned sports presenter Robert Marawa, former Hawks head Shadrack Sibiya, Advocate Gerrie Nel and Meyiwa’s family members.

Some feel it is too much to take in.
While others applaud Netflix for balanced storytelling giving viewers a new perspective on the matter.
Such a well balanced documentary. Unfortunately it needs a well balanced mind. Like forget about all you know about the story so you can have a proper conclusion. Theyve covered all sides of the story.

I still maintain ukuthi everyone who was in that house that night, knows exactly what happened to Senzo. May his spirit continue fighting until the real truth is exposed. #SenzoMeyiwa

If we really and I mean really pay attention guys. We will see and understand why the brother keeps saying the killer is not amongst the 5 guys and why the police are framing them. #SenzoMeyiwa

The initial story surrounding the former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper was a robbery gone wrong, however, almost a decade later, the process towards his justice has been marred by many different versions of what really happened.
Five men implicated in the murder of Meyiwa will face trial on 11 April 2022.
