Former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa’s widow Madnisa Mkhize allegedly distanced herself from the soccer star’s murder trial – according to a report by Zimoja. So, what do we know about Senzo’s widow?
THE PAIR GOT MARRIED IN 2014
The former Bafana Bafana captain married Mandisa Mkhize in March 2013 but their relationship involved tons of cheating allegedly.
Senzo: Murder of a Soccer Star, the Netflix documentary shed light on how everyone knew Senzo loved women and Mandisa knew about his cheating. She appeared to be unbothered about the cheating, although she allegedly found hotel receipts in his laundry.
However, things changed when she found out that Senzo fell in love with Kelly Khumalo. Kelly later fell pregnant with Senzo’s daughter Thingo, who is now eight years old.
Another bombshell revelation from the documentary is that Senzo wanted to make Kelly his second wife. This may not have sat well with Mandisa.
