All people from far and near are welcome to pay their last respect to South African soccer star Senzo Meyiwa who died on Sunday.
However, there’s only one person who is not allowed anywhere near the Meyiwa house- and that person is Senzo’s estranged girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo and the same goes to her two children and family. In fact, the thought of attending Senzo’s funeral should not even cross Kelly’s mind or the Asine singer will see flames!
“The service is open to anyone who wants to come to pay their last respect to Senzo. But that girl (referring to Kelly) is not welcome. She mustn’t even think about coming,” Senzo’s father, Samuel Meyiwa was quoted as issuing a stern warning.
Samuel insisted that only Senzo’s wife, Mandisa, is welcome to mourn for Senzo in her capacity as his wife.
“Mandisa is Senzo’s wife so of course she is welcome,” Samuel added.
News that Kelly is not welcome at Senzo’s funeral did not come as a surprise to many. Senzo’s parents are not vague when it comes to Ms Khumalo; they blatantly told her that they don’t want to see her and the baby.
In the previous interviews with a weekly magazine, Senzo’s mother has labeled Kelly a ‘witch’, charging Ms Khumalo as responsible for ruining her child’s soccer career. Samuel could not agree more, he added that Kelly and then unborn baby where not welcome in the Meyiwa family.
A few months ago it was reported that Kelly & sister drove all the way to Kwa Zulu Natal to show the Meyiwas their granddaughter and subsequently kiss and make up but she was apparently told to get off and instantly sent the emotionally hurt petite singer packing.
