Zandi Khumalo, who was present when the late Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa was tragically killed, shared a poignant account of the moments leading up to the incident. Speaking on Ukhozi FM, Zandi emphasized her family’s unwavering cooperation with the police since Senzo’s untimely death, providing every possible detail of that fateful day.
She highlighted their commitment to assist the authorities in bringing the culprits to justice.
On that ill-fated day, Zandi recalled a joyful atmosphere at the dinner table just moments before a group of men stormed into their Vosloorus home. They had returned from a cheerful show and gathered for Sunday dinner, enjoying the company of Senzo and his friend Tumelo. The mood abruptly shifted when Longwe Twala arrived, and amidst the ensuing chaos, intruders demanded valuables.
Amidst the commotion, Zandi witnessed the sudden escalation, with gunshots ringing out. She sought refuge in the bathroom, along with Tumelo, while the tumultuous events unfolded outside. The situation took a devastating turn as she saw Senzo fleeing, leaving her with questions.
With emotions running high, Zandi narrated how Senzo was eventually taken to his BMW SUV, not an ambulance, as she applied pressure to his chest wound. She claims that he was shot by a man who was wearing black. The chilling moments continued as they rushed to the hospital, where she felt Senzo’s condition deteriorating. Amidst the turmoil, her mother’s heart-wrenching screams echoed through the emergency ward.
