Durrban - Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba has arrived at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday morning ahead of the funeral service of the national soccer squad's captain Senzo Meyiwa.
He was greeted with wild applause and ululation from the supporters who had gathered to bid Meyiwa farewell.
Wearing a black suit, white shirt and a striped tie, he crossed the pitch to a marquee erected for guests.
Meyiwa was shot dead on Sunday evening.
On Friday, 25-year-old Vosloorus resident Zenokuhle Mbatha appeared in the Boksburg Magistrate's Court in connection with his murder.
