Senzo Meyiwa has a secret love child. Slain soccer hero Senzo Meyiwa has a baby boy, that his family only discovered after he was buried – reports Times Live.
Senzo’s family knew that he had 3 children, with three different women, namely his wife Mandisa, Kelly Khumalo and another child from a previous relationship.
It came as a shock to the Meyiwa family, on discovering that there is a fourth child, a baby boy, who they found out about after Senzo was buried. He got a heroes burial, last weekend in Durban.
It seems this baby boy, was born a few months after Kelly’s baby Thingo. The family are said to have accepted him, citing that they will do what they should do as the Zulu culture dictates to welcome the baby and take care of him. He apparently looks about “3 months old” and he apparently looks like his father.
Sam Meyiwa, Senzo’s dad said through the family’s spokesperson Siya Meyiwa: “We confirm that the baby was brought home and was acknowledged by the Meyiwas. The baby was brought to the family after Senzo’s funeral. We saw him, we are going to do what is necessary in order to ensure that he is also taken care of as a Meyiwa. Going forward, we are handling the situation according to our Zulu culture.”
The family asked for privacy, as they try and move forward with their lives.
Orlando Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza is said to have already met with the family, and he is still going to meet with the family to tighten up Senzo’s affairs with the club. The club has already parted with a considerable amount of money in helping out with the funeral arrangements, and in helping get the Orlando Pirates team to Durban for the funeral. All 50 of them in total!
It has also been reported that Patrice Motsepe has pledged R1 million to the Meyiwa family.
It seems that Kelly Khumalo, Mandisa Mkhize and all of Senzo’s children will be taken care of, once all of this blows over.
