The late Senzo Meyiwa left behind a legacy as one of the best goalkeepers in Mzansi. The Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates star also left his likeness with his firstborn child – daughter Nana.

The teen – whose mother is Senzo’s widow Mandisa Mkhize – turns 15 years old on Friday, 23 June 2023

The soccer star was shot and killed under mysterious circumstances on 26 October in Vosloorus, whilst visiting his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo

At the time of his death, Senzo had fathered Nana with his wife Mandisa and a second with his mistress Kelly. According to News24, the Orlando Pirates star had also fathered a three-month-old son, who was presented to his family following his funeral.

According to unconfirmed reports, Senzo Meyiwa also fathered a fourth child – a daughter named Namhla.


In an Instagram post, Mandisa Mkhize wished her daughter a happy 15th birthday. She also shared throwback images of Nana, who is unmistakenly a replica of her famous father.

The vibrant teen loves fashion, hanging out with her friends, and spending quality time with her mom.

And almost a decade since her famous father’s death, fans think she looks more and more like Senzo.

“Like father like daughter” are some of the regular comments seen under posts of the young girl.


Senzo Meyiwa’s second known daughter is Thingo, whom he conceived with his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo. At the time of his death in 2014, Thingo was only seven months old.

Having no recollection of her father, Thingo has also inherited her soccer star’s looks. “Senzo Meyiwa photocopy and “Senzo’s replica” are some of the comments by fans about the bubbly girl.

Thingo recently celebrated her ninth birthday, and like her half-sister, Nana loves mommy and daughter time. Although Nana and Thingo look like a carbon copy of their dad Senzo, it’s unclear if the siblings have ever met each other.

Not much is known about Senzo Meyiwa’s other baby mamas.
