The thrilling five-part true crime documentary series will debut on April 7 and will feature exclusive interviews with sports broadcaster Robert Marawa, former Hawks head Shadrack Sibiya, as well as Advocate Gerrie Nel and Meyiwa’s family members, who all provide an intimate look at both the life and death of the Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain.

At the helm of the series is multi-award-winning South African director and producer, Sara Blecher who is well known for her work in the film “Mayfair”, “Ayanda“ and ”Othello Burning”, among others.
