Fikile spoke about the late star's great soccer career and what he about his achievements. "Many of us didn't think that Senzo would be such a great leader. He's a fighter. He's strong." He said because of Senzo's contribution, Bafana Bafana had become a bunch of winners.

He ensured South Africans that Senzo's killers would be found.
