The late Senzo Meyiwa was a goalkeeper for Orlando Pirates in the Premier Soccer League as well as a Bafana Bafana goalie in international matches.
Born in 1984, Senzo Meyiwa passed on in mysterious circumstances that is yet to be solved at the tender age of 30, leaving his family and the country in mourning.
In his lifetime, the gifted goalkeeper had been married and had children. This article looks at who Senzo Meyiwa’s wife was, his mistress and children, and where they all are now.
Senzo Meyiwa’s wife
The late Senzo Meyiwa’s wife, now his widow, is Mandisa Mkhize. The two got married in 2013 but their marriage was marred by lots of cheating scandals.
According to sources, Senzo Meyiwa’s wife was born on 24 September 1987 and she comes from a well-off family.
Mandisa holds a degree in Business Administration and a diploma in Human Resources from the Durban University of Technology (DUT.)
It is unclear if Mandisa Mkhize has ever found love again since the sudden demise of her husband, but she seems to be focused on raising her daughter and enjoying what life has to offer to the fullest.
Although Senzo Meyiwa and his wife’s marriage was very rocky, one good thing that came out of it was their daughter- Nana Meyiwa.
When the Orlando Pirates goalie passed on, his daughter was still very young, right now she is all grown up and well in her teenage years. According to some people, the young lass inherited her father’s smile. What do you think?
Senzo Meyiwa and Kelly Khumalo
Since Senzo passed on, one of the names that have been mentioned in relation to the footballer and the circumstances surrounding his death is Kelly Khumalo.
Kelly Khumalo is a popular name in South Africa’s entertainment circles. She is an award-winning musician, an actress, a reality television star, and a former judge on The Voice South Africa.
Senzo and Kelly dated while he was married to Mandisa Mkhize but according to Kelly, she was not aware that Senzo was a married man. She came to know that she was the other woman in Senzo Meyiwa’s life when his wife confronted her and called her a husband snatcher.
Kelly Khumalo’s daughter with the slain footballer was born in 2014 and was only a few months old when her father tragically passed on.
Thingo Khumalo is the little girl’s name who turned eight years old in March 2022. She has a half-brother from Kelly Khumalo’s previous relationship called Christian and an older half-sister from Senzo’s marriage.
