The Meyiwa family believes there’s someone behind Thursday’s drama that led to the arrest of Teffo.

Family Spokesperson Nomalanga Meyiwa, speaking to the SABC News, says, “About that drama; we are also surprised that the advocate has been arrested. But we still not feeling well about this. Because we were going there in the court on Thursday, where we thought that we were going to have something that we will present back home.

So having that drama is like I don’t know how can I explain it. It was very difficult for us and having that the trial has been postponed until the 30th of May its seems like there’s a lot of delays and these delays are affecting and also this tells us that maybe there’s someone who’s behind this.”
