Netflix’s documentary Senzo: Murder of a Soccer Star dived into the details of that night. According to Senzo’s brother Sfiso, someone who was at the crime scene saw Tumelo the day after the murder.
“Apparently, he wasn;t telling these lies. He was telling the truth,” says Sfiso.
“Tumelo is the one we referred to as ‘guy in the cast.’ He came and stood just outside the yard in front of the entrance, he was crying. So, when Tumelo finally calmed down, he started confessing,” said a former police officer.
“He confessed that Senzso was shot by someone they were sitting together with. So, the story of intruders entering the house is not real,” the former police officer continued
