A Go-Fund-Me page has been set up to raise funds for the cost of returning KZN rugby star, Lindani Myeni’s body to South Africa after Hawaii police fatally shot the father of two.
According to reports, on Wednesday 14 April Hawaii police responded to a 911 call about a burglary at a home in Nuuanu. Upon arrival, a woman pointed the officers to Myeni who was seemingly standing nearby.
The police officers approached Myeni asking him to get down on the ground. Myeni, in turn, walked toward them and allegedly punched one of the officers before they shot at him. Four shots can be heard going off in the video footage that was released by the police department.
Myeni was transported to the local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds. His wife, Lindsay Myeni, posted a message on Facebook shortly after his death. In her post she refers to Myeni as “her king” saying:
They shot my king
I was with him at 7:30p.
He went for a drive to clear his mind after a fun family day. His green card interview was next week.
I called and he said he was on his way home at 7:52p.
By 8:10p cops had shot him four times.
How can you justify that?!
What happened in 18 MINUTES??
What do I tell my babies when they cry for him????
He has my heart. I will never find a perfect love like him. He was indescribable. He’d grown into a noble man. Righteous but not self-righteous. Loving and wise. He was too good for this broken world.
He was born at Queen Nandi hospital and passed at Queen Emma’s hospital.
We need justice. They must release the body cams and show us what happened.
Why are three trained officers afraid of one unarmed man?
They just left me a widow at 29 with two babies in diapers you gotta be f kidding me.
