Chriselda Lewis is the latest topic of discussion. Following a group of media houses trying to get a photo of a witness. Who was expected to take the stand for the Senzo Meyiwa trial earlier today.
Journalist lands in hot water
Thus far, it is reported by IOL, that a few journalists were chasing after a state witness. Trying to get a photo of a witness expected to take the stand today. Following the chase, the individual then needed to be escorted into a room. In which he/she was brought to calm down.
Right now, South Africans are not impressed with the Journalists who ran after the witness for a picture. After it was made known that the witness clearly did not want to be photographed.
To date, Journalist Chriselda Lewis took to Twitter to apologize to the many viewers. Who are actively seeking answers in the murder of the late soccer player, Senzo Meyiwa.
PERSONAL SORRY:— Chriselda Zozi Lewis (Babes Wendaba) (@Chriseldalewis) September 13, 2022
Apologies everyone, siyaxolisa.
We err as humans. Sometimes we tend to overextend ourselves in the execution of our duties and to bring you information. It is not an excuse.
We are back up at 13:45 when proceedings resume in the #SenzoMeyiwatrial
Social media responds to Chriselda Lewis and other’s conduct
Earlier today, a friend of Senzo Meyiwa from Kwa-Zulu Natal was expected to take the stand and speak on what happened the night the Bafana Bafana player was shot. Thus far, the witness relayed that the soccer goalkeeper was hiding at the time the robbers came into the Vosloorus home.
Presently, this contradicts singer Kelly Khumalo’s previous statement that Senzo Meyiwa got shot trying to protect her. Right now, many stories are yet to unfold regarding the murder of Senzo Meyiwa.
While the case is still unfolding, Chriselda Lewis and other Journalists are also accused of scarring off the witness with invasive questions about the current trial which the court did not stand behind.
However, the good news is that the Senzo Meyiwa trial will remain to be broadcast after the recent catastrophe around their conduct with the witness.
See what Twitter had to say about the matter.

Chriselda trends whether she does good or not so good. I'm offended on her behalf as fellow Transkeian. 😂😂😂😂🙈🙈. I love her feistiness though.— Tat'uRadebe (@hlubizer) September 13, 2022
Chriselda Lewis and her friends from ENCA and Newroom Africa decided to disregard court's guidelines. This was they did to witness, Tumelo Madlala. As a result they're all banned from the court, that implies that the public can no longer stream the #SenzoMeyiwatrial pic.twitter.com/5bs9UXW5nR— Mlungisi (@Mlungisi__N22) September 13, 2022
