According to the Sunday Sun in the new book, the former Orlando Pirates goalie’s widow Mandisa says those who warned him about the singer include a sangoma (traditional healer) and his friend Mthoko Twala.
Apparently, in the book Mandisa says she believes Kelly Khumalo loved her husband and that she doesn’t “blame” her for her relationship with Senzo, the book also details how Mthoko Twala warned Senzo not to get involved with the singer.
“I warned him, Senzo you’re getting yourself into hot water. You will burn,” Twala is quoted as saying.
“I’m begging you … She has a lot of baggage over her, there’s a dark spiritual cloud upon her … you are going to be a sacrifice,” Twala continued, according to Mandisa in the book.
According to the paper, another part of the book claims that Senzo Meyiwa’s parents took him to a spiritual leader, who also warned him about his relationship and predicted his death.
“The ancestors are completely not happy about this (relationship) … if you do not stop this, it will end with a gun. Somebody is going to die,” Mandisa quotes the sangoma as saying.
The book will launch on February 21, 2020, in Durban.
Both Kelly Khumalo and Mandisa Meyiwa declined to comment when contacted for comment by the paper, who happens to publish details about the upcoming book.
Senzo Meyiwa’s family still wants answers for his murder. They have now turned to civil rights organization, AfriForum for help.
And the organization has appointed Gerrie Nel as the family’s advocate.
Senzo Meyiwa’s brother, Siyabonga Meyiwa says that he wants policemen that will serve the nation in a Godly manner.
“I heard that the police have said people who were inside have lied. Why are they saying that now? I want the minister to release those two faithful investigators, to tell the truth, that they have completed the investigation,” says Siyabonga.
“It’s important that AfriForum gets involved in cases such as these – it’s in the interest of the whole country that the criminal justice system functions properly. AfriForum serves as a counterweight to the failure of the state, and as a civil rights watchdog it is our duty to prevent the criminal justice system from collapsing, says Kallie Kriel, CEO of the lobby group.
Zandile ‘Zandie’ Khumalo-Gumede categorically denies the allegations that former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa was shot dead while trying to intervene in a fight between herself and then-boyfriend Longwe Twala.
Zandie Khumalo-Gumede says that it is very sad and hurtful that after so many years after Senzo Meyiwa’s death they still have to defend themselves from people who are hell-bent on the theory that they are guilty.
“It really makes one wonder if Senzo’s family and the society that says we are guilty really want justice to prevail or they just want to see the Khumalos arrested, I often think to myself that because nothing stays hidden forever if someday the person that killed Senzo gets arrested and it turns out not to be one of the people in the house as it will… Will the family and those who have crucified us be satisfied or they will continue spewing untruths,” reads parts of a statement released by Zandie Kumalo in November 2019.
