Sunday World reports that the soccer star Senzo Meyiwa’s wife Mandisa Mkhize has finished the face-brick house, which is located in the south of Durban.  

His brother Sifiso Meyiwa told the publication that his brother cared for his family and his children.

“His goal was to raise them in a warm and safe environment. Unfortunately, he died before achieving this goal.”  

“What was more painful was the fact that he left his kids homeless, they did not have a place of their own.”  

“For the past eight years that house was a hub for vagrants. We used to find all sorts of dirt, and we tried to maintain and keep it clean, but it was difficult because of its location.”  

“At some point, we were not even sure what to do with it, but selling it was the last thing on our minds, we knew it was Senzo’s pride.  

Sifiso adds that Mandisa will be occupying the house as she’s the one who bought the material and completed it.   

“I’m not sure how much she spent, but she spent a lot of money. My understanding is that she will be living in that house with his kids.”

The soccer star’s brother Sifiso also told Sunday World that the family will now focus on the upcoming trial, which will resume in November 2022.  

“Our eyes are now on the [murder] case, and we know the truth will come out. It can take years, but the real culprits will be revealed, and everyone will be shocked.”  

Mandisa was approached by the publication for comment but failed to respond at the time of publishing this article.
