Cape Town - Bafana Bafana midfielder Sibusiso Vilakazi is struggling to come to terms with the loss of national teammate Senzo Meyiwa.

“What a very happy person. We have lost him too early especially when everything was going so well for him – I mean how many players are captains of both their club and country?

“He was the kind of person who made everyone around him smile."

According to Vilakazi, Meyiwa's presence was an inspiration to his fellow teammates and the goalkeeper was also very welcoming and friendly to those around him. 

Vilakazi said that Meyiwa was a pivotal part of the Bafana Bafana turnaround. He added that Meyiwa had a big heart and will be sorely missed. 

Meyiwa was gunned down at just 27-years-old.
