Senzo Meyiwa’s wife Mandisa Mkhize has disappeared from the spotlight since his death. Former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa tied the knot with Mandisa Mkhize in March 2013. However, their union was plagued by allegations of infidelity.
The Netflix documentary, “Senzo: Murder of a Soccer Star,” shed light on Senzo’s well-known fondness for women, and Mandisa’s awareness of his cheating. Despite discovering hotel receipts in his laundry, Mandisa seemed unfazed.
Things took a turn when Senzo fell in love with Kelly Khumalo, who later became pregnant with Senzo’s daughter Thingo, now eight years old. Shockingly, the documentary revealed that Senzo had intentions of making Kelly his second wife, which likely didn’t sit well with Mandisa.
Who Is Senzo Meyiwa’s wife Mandisa Mkhize?
Mandisa Mkhize, Senzo’s widow, was born in September 1987, making her 36 years old. She attended Bophelo Impilo Private School and Ridge Park College before pursuing her education at Durban University of Technology (DUT), where she earned a Diploma in Human Resources and a degree in Business Administration.
It is believed that Mandisa comes from a wealthy family. She and Senzo share a daughter named Nana, who is on the verge of turning 18. Allegedly, Nana faced financial difficulties when her donors, Red Farm, withdrew their funding, but former referee Andile “Ace” Ncobo stepped in to assist with R1500 a month until she reaches 21.
Kelly Khumalo, unaware of Senzo’s marital status during their relationship, claimed that Mandisa had stalked her and even attempted to push her off the road. Kelly shared her astonishment during a previous interview shown in the Netflix documentary.
“We were in a convoy with Senzo, and this woman comes up and is like ‘what the hell’ and then I phone him. Like dude, what the hell is going on? So we all stopped on the side of the road, I came out to say ‘okay sis, what is the problem? Why are you trying to push me off the road?’ That’s when it all came out,” said Kelly.
“When she started calling me names… ‘you stole my husband.’ I’m like woah,” she continued. Kelly had thought Senzo was leaving Mandisa for her, but allegedly, he was spending time with Mandisa behind her back.
