Former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain Senzo Meyiwa was tragically killed. Hours later, his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo and her sister Zandile reportedly sought a traditional healer for ritual cleansing. The same healer later claimed that Gladness, their mother, along with Zandile and her boyfriend Longwe Twala, visited her too.
Twala told the healer he couldn’t sleep due to a feeling of being strangled by a dead person. These details come from an affidavit provided to the police by the unnamed sangoma.
The sangoma, in her January 20, 2015 affidavit, hesitated to perform rituals on Twala without his parents’ consent. Still, Gladness persuaded her, claiming that no one else would help her. Kelly Khumalo returned in January 2015 for another cleansing ceremony with a goat because things weren’t going well for her. Even her two children underwent ritual cleansing.
During the cleansing, the sangoma told Longwe that a shadow of a dead person was following him, to which he responded that this presence was strangling him, causing sleepless nights. Kelly Khumalo declined to comment, expressing her frustration. Zandile and Twala were unreachable for comment.

Similar Designs with Subtle Differences
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 14 share similar designs. Both come in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch sizes, featuring aluminum rails and glass backs. However, the iPhone 15 distinguishes itself with a few key changes:
- The rear glass is now a single piece for a cleaner look.
- The edges are slightly contoured for improved comfort.
- Thinner bezels give the iPhone 15 a more modern appearance.
Moreover, the iPhone 15 offers a new palette of paler colors, including pink, yellow, green, blue, and black. In contrast, the iPhone 14’s colors are more vibrant and saturated, making it a better choice if you want a phone that stands out.
Dynamic Island vs. Notch
The iPhone 15 features the Dynamic Island, a pill-shaped cutout that replaces the notch. It houses Face ID sensors and offers a dynamic interface for various functions, including music playback control, timers, sports scores, and phone calls. In contrast, the iPhone 14 retains the traditional notch for Face ID, lacking the dynamic features of the Dynamic Island.
Camera Improvements in the iPhone 15
If photography is a priority, the iPhone 15 shines. It boasts a 48-megapixel main sensor, offering better color accuracy, improved low-light performance, and the option to capture full 48-megapixel photos. The middle 12-megapixels of the sensor can be used for zooming without quality loss.
Additionally, the iPhone 15 features an enhanced 12-megapixel ultrawide camera, delivering better portrait mode photos and 4K video support in Cinematic mode.
In contrast, the iPhone 14’s camera setup is more basic, featuring a 12-megapixel main camera and a 12-megapixel ultrawide, which are carried over from the iPhone 13.
Performance and Software Updates
The iPhone 15 boasts the A16 Bionic processor, offering faster everyday performance, improved gaming graphics, and better efficiency. While the iPhone 14’s A15 Bionic chip is also powerful, the A16 promises enhanced performance.
Moreover, the iPhone 15 will receive software updates for a longer period, ensuring longevity compared to the iPhone 14.
USB-C Port vs. Lightning
Apple has replaced the Lightning port with USB-C in the iPhone 15. This change allows one cable to charge multiple devices and offers compatibility with a wide range of accessories. If you’re attached to Lightning accessories, the iPhone 14 retains the familiar port.
For budget-conscious consumers, the iPhone 14 is an attractive option. It now starts at a lower price point, making it a cost-effective choice without compromising the essential iPhone experience.
The Bottom Line
Both the iPhone 15 and iPhone 14 offer compelling features, and your choice depends on your priorities:
- iPhone 15: If you desire the latest technologies, a revamped camera system, and an upgraded processor, the iPhone 15 is the way to go. It also promises extended software support and better battery life.
- iPhone 14: If you seek a reliable smartphone that excels in the fundamentals at a more affordable price, the iPhone 14 delivers. It’s suitable for those who prefer the Lightning port and don’t require cutting-edge camera capabilities.
Ultimately, both phones provide a solid iPhone experience, and the decision comes down to your specific needs and budget.
