Senzo was literally everything in the family, we were looking up to him becoming a really bright star, which unfortunately was extinguished by some really bad people,” he said.

“We’re looking forward, everyone who was part of the murder must be booked as well.”

For the family, his mother is happy but there’s nothing that can make up for what Senzo would have done in the family, in terms of, giving them the type of living and the type of benefits that we were expecting and we were looking forward to in his career.”

There was a lot of investment that was done by the family and sacrifices in making sure that he was successful.”
