Senzo Meyiwa not only left behind a nation of grieving fans, but also four reported children, who will grow up not knowing their father. The Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper was shot and killed under mysterious circumstances in 2013, whilst visiting his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo.

At the time of his death, Senzo had fathered his first child; a daughter with his wife Mandisa Mkhize, and a second with his mistress Kelly. According to reports, the soccer star, known for his wandering eye, also had two more children with different baby mamas.

Senzo Meyiwa’s first known child is a daughter named Namhla. The teen lives with Senzo’s mother, Ntombifuthi, who is also her legal guardian, in Umlazi, KwaZulu-Natal –

According to Diski365, the young girl – believed to be 17 – is being financially supported by NGO Red Ants. She’s also received assistance from Senzo’s fellow Orlando Pirates colleague Brilliant Khuzwayo

While the biological mother of Namla is unknown, Senzo’s wife, Mandisa Mkhize has also embraced the young girl as her own.

The now 15-year-old bears a striking similarity to her famous dad and is often spotted on her mom’s Instagram account. The vibrant teen loves fashion, hanging out with her friends, and spending quality time with her mom.

And more than a decade after 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 third 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 young girl.

Although Nana and Thingo look like a carbon copy of their dad Senzo, it’s unclear if the siblings have ever met each other.


Meanwhile, TimesLive reported that Senzo Meyiwa’s fourth child – a son – was introduced to his family several months after his death.

The publication claims the baby boy was born shortly after Thingo in 2013.

Senzo’s late father Sam, speaking through Siyabonga Meyiwa, told the publication: “We confirm that the baby was brought home and was acknowledged by the Meyiwas.

“The baby was brought to the family after Senzo’s funeral. We saw him, we are going to do what is necessary in order to ensure that he is also taken care of as a Meyiwa.

“Going forward, we are handling the situation according to our Zulu culture.”

The identity of the baby and his mother has remained private.
