It has been confirmed that South African seasoned goal keeper, Senzo Meyiwa is no more. Meyiwa was shot dead on Sunday 26 October 2014 (exactly a month after he celebrated his 27th birthday) and details surrounding his passing still remain vague.
Senzo, who was elected captain for Orlando Pirates, won numerous accolades and his outstanding performance in the foot field captured the attention of many people.
However, it was not only Senzo’s football career that made him the household name and saw the 27 year old gentleman dominating the media’s headlines, but his private life too.
As of lately, Senzo private life came to be at the centre of attention after it has emerged that he was seeing controversial South African singer, Kelly Khumalo behind his wife’s back, Mandisa.
Senzo-Kelly relationship left many tongues wagging with Senzo’s parents quick to disown Kelly citing immorality and bad news while rallying behind their makoti, Mandisa. The extent to which Senzo’s parents vehemently despise Kelly became apparent when the Qinisela hit maker apparently visited the Meyiwas to show them their granddaughter.
Then, it was reported that the Meyiwas sent the visibly emotionally hurt Kelly packing without giving her an audience. During this time, Mandisa, Senzo’s official wife had already moved out of the place she was sharing with Senzo.
Although many people were against the relationship of Kelly and Senzo, however the latter seemed unfazed. She loved Kelly for who she really was. Kelly was seen, in numerous occasions, attending private functions with Senzo and the two would pose for pictures together and thereafter post them on social media.
About two weeks ago when Senzo went for interview on Thursday Night Live with Marawa on the Super Sport 4 Channel, Kelly was invited as a surprise artist for exclusive performance. Senzo was then asked to introduce Kelly’s performance but the visibly love struck goalie struggled to get his tongue moving- he was literally out of words for seconds.
Then, it became clear to everyone that Senzo and Kelly are madly in love with each other. Senzo always supported Kelly and it seems he has never stopped loving her even after everything the two have gone through.
But now that he is gone, one cannot help it but wonder how Kelly is doing during this ordeal especially taking into account few factors that probably weigh a lot in times like this.
- Kelly & Senzo were dating but not married
- Senzo and wife were reportedly separated, but the former continued seeing Kelly
- By the time of his death, Senzo and Mandisa were still married
- Senzo’s parents were never vague, they supported Mandisa
- They don’t want to see Kelly’s footsteps + her baby
Therefore, questions such as the ones that follow would always pop up:
- Will Kelly be allowed to attend the funeral of his beloved boyfriend & father of her child?
- Will the Meyiwas finally accept Kelly?
- What will happen to Tingo, Senzo & Kelly’s baby?
