In the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial, an eyewitness testified on Friday under heavy security. Constable Sizwe Zungu, who claims to know the accused, returned to the witness stand for cross-examination. On Thursday, he had placed the accused individuals at a hostel in Vosloorus, the same area where Meyiwa was killed at the home of his celebrity girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo.
On Friday, Constable Zungu’s security was visibly increased, with two tactical response team (TRT) guards stationed behind him as he testified. This heightened security came after an incident on Thursday when one of the accused was caught on tape making threatening gestures.
During his testimony, Zungu mentioned that he initially wrote his statement by hand, which was later typed. The defense requested access to the original handwritten notes. Zungu explained that some of his notes were at his witness protection residence, while others were at his homes in Tembisa and KwaZulu-Natal.
The judge expressed concerns about Zungu’s safety, especially as he would be traveling to KZN over the weekend to collect his notes. The judge stated, “There’s a real possibility that the safety of this witness has been compromised, and I hope that this witness will still be alive on Monday.” Zungu also mentioned that his family had been relocated to a place of safety.
As the proceedings adjourned, the judge advised Zungu not to take his safety lightly, and Zungu responded that he would pray for his safety.

Samsung Rolls Out September 2023 Security Update for Galaxy S23 Series in Europe
Samsung has continued its commitment to device security by releasing the September 2023 security update for the Galaxy S23 series in Europe. This follows the recent release of the same update for the US market, encompassing both carrier-locked and factory-unlocked versions of these smartphones.
September 2023 Security Update Arrives for Galaxy S23 Series
The latest software update, which is now available for the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra in European countries, carries the firmware version S91xBXXS3AWHR. Users can expect a download size of approximately 320MB for this update. Its primary focus is to deliver the crucial September 2023 security patch, addressing more than 60 security vulnerabilities present in the previous software iteration. Unlike previous updates, this release does not introduce any new features or enhancements related to performance or reliability.
Recent Software Updates for the Galaxy S23 Series
It’s worth noting that the Galaxy S23 series has seen significant attention in terms of software updates in recent months. Just last month, these devices received a major software update that brought several improvements to their camera functionality, along with the introduction of new camera features. Samsung’s dedication to refining the user experience remains evident through these frequent updates.
How to Check for and Install the Update
For Galaxy S23 series owners residing in Europe, checking for and installing the September 2023 security update is a straightforward process. To begin, follow these steps:
- Navigate to Settings on your device.
- Scroll down and select Software update.
- Tap Download and install to initiate the update process.
Alternatively, advanced users can opt to manually download the new firmware file from Samsung’s firmware database. Subsequently, they can use a Windows PC and the Odin firmware flashing tool to apply the update manually.
Upcoming Android 14 Update
Samsung introduced the Galaxy S23 series earlier this year, featuring Android 13 as the pre-installed operating system. However, the company has been quick to advance its software offerings. In select countries, registered devices have already received the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 beta update.
Samsung’s roadmap includes plans to roll out the stable Android 14 update to the Galaxy S23 series before the end of the year, ensuring that users continue to benefit from the latest software innovations and security enhancements.
