Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa’s family have barred his girlfriend and mother of his child, Kelly Khumalo, from attending his funeral in Durban.

“The service is open to anyone who wants to come to pay their last respects to Senzo, but that girl [Kelly Khumalo] is not welcome. She mustn’t even think about coming,” Meyiwa’s father, Samuel was quoted as saying by The New Age today.

Gauteng detective unit head Maj-Gen Norman Taioe told reporters that Meyiwa was shot in his upper body while visiting his girlfriend, singer and actress Khumalo, in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni, on Sunday night.

Two men entered the house as the 27-year-old national team and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper and captain and his friends were leaving. One of the attackers was waiting outside.

“Senzo and his friends were leaving when the two entered the house. One of the attackers bumped into the first friend and a scuffle ensued,” Taioe said on Monday.

One shot was fired inside the house, and two more were fired randomly outside. The three fled the scene with a stolen cellphone.

A reward of up R250 000 was being offered for information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of the killers.

Police have released identikits of two dreadlocked men with gold teeth believed to be involved in Meyiwa’s shooting.

Meyiwa would be buried in Durban on Saturday.
