Zandie Khumalo, Senzo Meyiwa’s “side chick” Kelly Khumalo’s sister, testified in his current murder trial – who was his wife Mandisa Mkhize? Former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa married Mandisa Mkhize in March 2013, but their marriage allegedly 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 adultery. She acted unconcerned about the adultery, despite the fact that she supposedly discovered hotel receipts in his laundry.
Things changed when she discovered Senzo was in love with Kelly Khumalo. Kelly gave birth to Senzo’s daughter Thingo, who is now eight years old. Another shocking revelation from the video was Senzo’s desire to make Kelly his second wife. This might not have gone over well with Mandisa.
1. Mandisa Mkhize’s age
Senzo’s widow will turn 36 years old on 24 September 1987.
2. MANDISA REPORTEDLY STUDIED HUMAN RESOURCE MANGEMENT AT DUT
According to Briefly, she attended Bophelo Impilo Private School and then Ridge Park College. She later attended Durban University of Technology (DUT) where she studied towards her Diploma of Human Resources and her degree in Business Administration.
3. SHE WAS CONSIDERED TO BE ‘WELL OFF’
Mandisa is considered to come from a wealthy family.
4. MANDISA HAS A DAUGHTER WITH SENZO
Mandisa and Senzo share a daughter named Nana. Nana would be 18 this year. She was allegedly “living in poverty” because her donors Red Farm pulled her funding but former referee Andile “Ace” Ncobo is reportedly assisting her with R1500 a month until she turns 21.
Mandisa, according to Kelly Khumalo, stalked her and allegedly tried to shove her off the road. The singer had no idea Senzo was married while they were dating until that incident.
“We were in a convoy with Senzo and this woman comes up and is like ‘what the hell’ and then I phone him. Like due, what the hell is going on? So we all stopped on the side of the road, I came out to say ‘okay sisi, what is the problem? Why are you trying to push me off the road? That’s when it came out,” said Kelly in a previous interview shown on the Netflix documentary.
When she started calling me names…you stole my husband. I’m like woah,” she continued. Kelly thought Senzo was leaving Mandisa for her but he was allegedly spending time with Mandisa behind her back.
