The south Durban face-brick home was built for a soccer player who sadly did not survive to see it completed. East of Johannesburg in Vosloorus, he was murdered at the home of his then-girlfriend, the Afro-pop singer Kelly Khumalo.
The uptodown World has learned that eight years after Meyiwa’s death, Mandisa, who is finishing up some renovations, plans to move into the property.
Sifiso Meyiwa, Senzo’s brother, remarked, “Senzo cared for his family, especially his kids. All he wanted was for them to grow up in a loving and secure home. Too bad he didn’t live long enough to see this through to completion.
That he had abandoned his children, who now without a home of their own, was even more heartbreaking. So, when he passed away, one of the tycoons approached my father and said, “I’ll finish the house for you.
Sifiso continued: “For the past eight years, that house was a nexus for vagrants. There was a lot of grime there before, and although we did our best to keep it clean, its placement made that an uphill battle. We had no idea what to do with it for a while, but we certainly didn’t want to sell it, as it was clearly Senzo’s pride and joy.
Mandisa, Senzo’s wife, will be moving in there as of today, I’m delighted to report. She’s the one that went out and got the supplies and finished the work. She spent a lot of money; I can’t even guess how much. From what I’ve heard, she’ll be sharing the home with Senzo’s offspring. We are all quite happy that she was able to grant my brother’s desire, although for obvious reasons I cannot reveal the precise location. I pray Senzo is content and looking down on her with a smile.
According to Sifiso, the best is yet to come.
We’re keeping a close eye on the [murder] investigation today, and we’re confident that the truth will eventually emerge. Even if it takes a long time, the truth about who’s responsible will eventually come out.
We reached out to Mandisa’s for comment, but they didn’t get back to us
