A suspect has appeared in court on a murder charge over the death of South African football captain Senzo Meyiwa.

Nathi Mncube, spokesman for the National Prosecuting Authority, said the suspect also faces a charge of armed robbery.

Meyiwa, the South African goalkeeper who also played for the Orlando Pirates, was fatally shot on Sunday night in an apparent house robbery.

His death in the Vosloorus township near Johannesburg led to an outpouring of dismay and anger in South Africa, which has a high murder rate.
