Cape Town - Police minister Bheki Cele says the hunt for the murderer of late Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa is continuing in 'full force'.

Meyiwa was shot dead in October 2014 at his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo's house in Vosloorus, though no arrest has been made in relation to finding the guilty party. 

The deceased shot-stopper's life was celebrated last Saturday in a legends' tournament at King Zwelethini Stadium in Umlazi. 

Cele was at the commemoration which was attended by the likes of Andile Jali, Lucky Lekgwathi, Siyabonga Sangweni, Steve Lekoelea, Joseph Makhanya and Thabo Mooki. 

Speaking after the game, the minister said: "I still have hope in the end we'll be able to find the killers one day. 

"I'm happy with what I've seen here (on Saturday) and Senzo's name will have to be maintained. 

"It is for the purpose of the up and coming generations to ask who was Senzo and then know that Senzo wasn't only an Orlando Pirates player, but he was a national asset that passed away in such conditions. 

"As a nation our conscience should not be diminished and us given the task, we have to be able to get answers of what happened. 

"But all I'm trying to avoid is the pressure that can have an unnecessary impact that will lead us to not doing our job properly, because the day we'll make a statement to the public will be the day where we'll have the answers. 

"But what is important is we are not only talking about football but one day we'll come up and answer what happened to Senzo. That continues and the investigation is still in full force."
