Last month, Sunday World reported that a reliable source had looped them in on Sphelele's pregnancy, also revealed that she is pregnant with twin boys.

According to the source, the couple had been advised to keep the news under wraps due to the nature of trolling Siphelele had received after the announcement of their first pregnancy.

“It is true, Khune and Sphelele will soon welcome new additions to the family. Both families are excited that their brood is growing.

"She was advised to keep a low profile to protect herself from negativity and haters,"
the source had told the publication.

The police broke down the door and found a 27-year-old burnt inside the room. Unfortunately, the lady died."

It was later reported that a 17-year-old was arrested under suspicions of involvement in the murder of the footballer's sister. It was further reported that the teenage boy would appear before the Ventersdorp Children’s Court.

"This comes after the 17-year-old boy was charged on Friday afternoon, 5 March 2021, in Ventersdorp, following the alleged murder of Khune. Police initially investigated an inquest, but after obtaining more information, the inquest was changed to murder.
