Durban - Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa's father said the bullet that had taken his son's life had killed a part of him.

A visibly upset Sam Meyiwa told reporters outside his house in Umlazi in Durban that he wanted the men who had killed his son arrested as soon as possible.

"They (the police) must make sure they get these people who killed my son.

"I want them in jail. I want them in custody. I want to talk to them and ask them why they killed my son. It's like they killed myself."

Standing upright and biting his lips, Meyiwa said his son had been expected to return home this past weekend, but had changed his plans.

He said he was still battling to comprehend that his son was dead.

"I don't know if I'm coming or going. My heart is broken. I'm just finished."

The narrow road outside his house in Umlazi's K-section had been cordoned off by the eThekwini metro police. Family members and friends could be seen inside the property.

A host of photographers, journalists and cameramen milled around outside the property as children and curious onlookers watched from a little further away.

As Sam Meyiwa spoke to reporters, a lorry with hundreds of chairs arrived.

KwaZulu-Natal premier Senzo Mchunu was expected to visit the family later in the day.

The funeral is expected to take place on Saturday.
