Media misinterpretted Samuel Meyiwa’s
Screenshot_2014-11-04-10-37-01-1It has been the most tragic week in the sports fraternity, where South Africa laid to rest the trio Phindile Mwelase, Mbulaeni Mulaudzi and Senzo Meyiwa.

Senzo Meyiwa’s death has been nothing but most read and followed headlines, on tv, radio and print. Nzoro as he was well known to his fellow supporters and peers.

He met his death on the 26th of October 2014 at his girlfriend’s house in Vosloorus, where he was shot on a so called robbery but he was declared dead upon his arrival at hospital.

The controvercial Senzo’s death, shocked the nation and his family. Where the pain was not only felt by the family but the country at large is bereaved.

Shortly after the news reached the nation, South Africa learned about the outspoken and angry Samuel Meyiwa, who is the father of late Senzo.

Mr Meyiwa gained popularity when he refused to accept Kelly Khumalo as Senzo’s second wife. He was again raging flames when he learned that the Bafana skipper and goal keeper died at Kelly’s home.

On the day of the Funeral, Samuel Meyiwa was seen hanging on the window, waving to the filled up Moses Mabhida stadium. After the caption of him cheering the masses, the social media and newspapers sparked uncalled for headlines and some photos replica to what was displayed by Meyiwa Snr.

After a thoroughly understanding of what was displayed by Mr Meyiwa Snr, I therefore came to conclusion that, he was actually doing what Senzo displayed when he celebrate a goal. Unfortunately most failed to identify the reason behind the most talked about “Meyiwa’s Celebration”.

The late Shot stopper Senzo Meyiwa, would run within his penalty box showing excitement and joy when Orlando Pirates scored. Hence the above displayed picture of him and his Father doing the same celebration.
It was the only to say thank you South Africans in a Senzo style of celebration, unfortunately, he could not do it like his merely because he was chauffered.
In conclusion, the media and the public, misinterpreted the controvercial celebration.
