Everything you need to know about Mandisa Mkhize, Senzo Meyiwa’s wife. Former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa married Mandisa Mkhize in March 2013 but their relationship involved tons of cheating allegedly.

Senzo Meyiwa was a South African professional footballer who was born on January 24, 1987, in Durban, South Africa. He was primarily known as a goalkeeper and had a successful career playing for both club and country.

Meyiwa rose to prominence while playing for Orlando Pirates, one of the top football clubs in South Africa. He joined the team in 2005 and went on to become their first-choice goalkeeper and team captain. He played a crucial role in leading Orlando Pirates to several domestic titles, including multiple Premier Soccer League (PSL) championships and Nedbank Cup victories.

In addition to his club success, Meyiwa was also a key player for the South African national team. He made his debut for Bafana Bafana, the national team, in 2013 and quickly established himself as the first-choice goalkeeper. He represented South Africa in various international competitions, including the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

Tragically, Senzo Meyiwa was shot and killed on October 26, 2014, in Vosloorus, a township near Johannesburg. The circumstances surrounding his death caused shock and grief throughout the country. The case remained unsolved for several years, with ongoing investigations by the South African police.

In the Netflix documentary Murder of a Soccer Star, it was revealed that Mandisa was aware of Senzo’s infidelity and that everyone knew he loved women. She didn’t seem concerned about the infidelity, despite the fact that she supposedly discovered hotel invoices in his laundry.

However, when she learned that Senzo had fallen in love with Kelly Khumalo, everything changed. Later, Kelly became pregnant with Thingo, Senzo’s now eight-year-old daughter. The show also made the shocking disclosure that Senzo planned to make Kelly his second wife. Mandisa might not have been pleased with this.

Senzo’s widow will turn 36 years old on 24 September 1987.


She reportedly went to Ridge Park College after graduating from Bophelo Impilo Private School, according to Briefly. Later, she enrolled in Durban University of Technology (DUT), where she pursued a Business Administration degree and a diploma in human resources.


Mandisa is considered to come from a wealthy family.


Nana is a daughter that Mandisa and Senzo have together. This year, Nana would turn 18. She was apparently “living in poverty” before Red Farm, one of her donors, cut off her financing, but according to reports, former referee Andile “Ace” Ncobo is helping her out with R1500 per month until she turns 21.

Mandisa allegedly tried to shove Kelly Khumalo off the road and stalked her, according to Kelly Khumalo. Prior to that occasion, the singer was dating Senzo but was unaware of his marriage.

“We were in a convoy with Senzo and this woman comes up and is like ‘what the hell’ and then I phone him. Like due, what the hell is going on? So we all stopped on the side of the road, I came out to say ‘okay sisi, what is the problem? Why are you trying to push me off the road? That’s when it came out,” said Kelly in a previous interview shown on the Netflix documentary.

When she started calling me names…you stole my husband. I’m like woah,” she continued. Kelly thought Senzo was leaving Mandisa for her but he was allegedly spending time with Mandisa behind her back.
