Senzo Meyiwa was a South African professional footballer who captained both the Orlando Pirates and the South African national team in the Premier Soccer League. On October 26, 2014, he was shot and died in a robbery.
Meyiwa was shot and died in a robbery at his girlfriend’s house in Vosloorus, actress and singer Kelly Khumalo, on October 26, 2014. When he arrived at the hospital in Johannesburg, he was pronounced dead. The incident was thought to have involved three people, and police issued composite pictures of two suspects.
Zamokuhle Mbatha, one of the suspects, was detained on October 31, 2014, and appeared in court, however he was released on November 11, 2014 owing to a lack of evidence. The death of Meyiwa provoked indignation in the country, which has high crime and homicide rates.
Who was Senzo Meyiwa wife, Mandisa Meyiwa?
Mandisa Meyiwa is well known in South Africa as the wife of late, Bafana Bafana goalkeeper and captain, Senzo Meyiwa.
In March 2013, the former Bafana Bafana captain married Mandisa Mkhize, but their relationship apparently entailed a lot of cheating.
The Netflix documentary Senzo: Murder of a Soccer Star revealed how everyone knew Senzo loved women and Mandisa was aware of his infidelity. Despite the fact that she allegedly discovered hotel invoices in his laundry, she appeared unconcerned about the adultery.
Things changed, however, when she learned that Senzo had fallen in love with Kelly Khumalo.
Kelly later became pregnant with Thingo, Senzo’s eight-year-old daughter.
