South African President Jacob Zuma on Monday said he was saddened, shocked and outraged at the shooting death of the national football team`s talismanic captain Senzo Meyiwa.
Zuma voiced his "shock, sadness and outrage" at the death of 27-year-old Meyiwa, who was gunned down at a house near Johannesburg.
Meyiwa was the goalkeeper and captain of national side Bafana Bafana and the Orlando Pirates, one of the country`s biggest clubs.
"We mourn the death of this young footballer and team leader whose life has been taken away at the prime of his career," Zuma said in a statement.
The president said that law enforcement authorities "must leave no stone unturned in finding his killers and bring them to justice."
"Words cannot express the nation`s shock at this loss."
