FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya has paid tribute to slain Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain Senzo Meyiwa.
The 27-year-old goalkeeper was shot dead by robbers on Sunday while visiting a friend near Johannesburg.
“It is a tragedy for South African football to lose one of it’s brightest stars in Senzo Meyiwa.
We are all shocked that soneone so talented and at the peak of his time can lose his life in such a manner,” he said.
Kalusha added:”On behalf of the Zambian football family, we want to express our sincere condolences to Orlando Pirates, the South African Football Association, his family and friends.”
South African Police on Sunday said two men entered his friend’s house about 18h00 and a third waited outside before they all fled immediately after the shooting.
Meyiwa kept a clean-sheet in Bafana Bafana’s first four matches of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign.
