Senzo Meyiwa shooting: 'I chased gunman' - Johannesburg resident

South African police say have launched a major manhunt to find the killers of national football captain Senzo Meyiwa, shot dead by suspected burglars.

They have offered a reward of 250,000 rand (£14,000; $23,000) for information about the attack, which highlights the country's high rates of violent crime.

Meyiwa, 27, was reportedly shot after men entered his girlfriend's house.

The BBC's Milton Nkosi spoke to a local man who said he had seen a man with what looked like a firearm and tried to chase him down.

Another resident told the BBC she was now scared of the neighbourhood.
