Senzo Meyiwa was reportedly cheating with Kelly Khumalo’s sister, Zandie

An explosive affidavit deposed by one of Senzo Meyiwa’s friends has shed light on the murdered Orlando Pirates goalkeeper’s relationship with Kelly Khumalo, Zandile “Zandie” Khumalo, and Longwe Twala.

According to a local publication, Meyiwa who was in a relationship with singer Kelly Khumalo opened up about his affair with Kelly’s younger sister, Zandie. At the time, Zandile (also a singer) was in a relationship with Longwe Twala.

The publication reports that the affidavit reveals that Kelly was using Zandie to track Meyiwa’s whereabouts. This, according to the friend, is when Zandie and Meyiwa started sleeping together.

“I can also state that at certain times, Senzo told me before he died that Kelly was using her sister to monitor him.

“He actually told me that Zandie would stay with him in the unit and move with him wherever he went at the instruction of Kelly. He told me he ended up having an affair with Zandie and started sleeping with her behind her sister’s back,” the affidavit reveals.

In the affidavit, the friend also stated that Meyiwa told him “there were significant problems” between him and Longwe because he started suspecting that the soccer star was sleeping with his girlfriend.

Meyiwa was murdered at Kelly and Zandie’s family home in Vosloorus, Gauteng, on 26 October 2014.

Kelly; Zandie; Longwe Twala; the singers’ mother, Ntombi Khumalo; and two of Meyiwa’s friends, Mthokozisi Thwala and Tumelo Madlala, were all in the house that fateful day.

During his interview with eNCA in August 2023, Meyiwa’s brother, Sifiso Meyiwa, gave a different version of events.

“Longwe arrived with a firearm. He was very angry. They said that he was so angry he did not greet anyone in the house. He was angry because he could not get ahold of Zandie,” he explained to the news channel.

Sifiso claims that Zandie had slept at Kelly’s place the day before the incident. In the house, he says, were Kelly, Senzo, Zandie, and Senzo’s friend Mthokozisi Thwala.

“Longwe arrived there [at Kelly’s] that night and saw that there were two guys and two ladies. He left and returned [on the day of the incident] furious because he felt he was being lied to and made an idiot because his girlfriend is cheating with Senzo’s friend from Durban.

“When he arrived he fought with Zandie and when they fought, there was a ruckus. He pulled out a firearm. The first bullet hit the floor and hit Zandie on the foot. Then there was a tussle for the gun and I don’t know how the trigger was pulled. That is what needs to be explained. But he [Longwe] wasn’t the only one holding the gun at that time, they were fighting over it,” he said.
