‘Kelly welcome at funeral’

2014-10-30 00:00

KELLY Khumalo will be allowed to attend Senzo Meyiwa’s funeral, his family said yesterday.

The Bafana captain’s father, Sam, was reported yesterday to have said that “that girl” would not be welcome.

Khumalo was the married Meyiwa’s mistress. He was shot dead at her mother’s house.

Siyabonga Meyiwa, Senzo’s cousin and the family spokesperson, said yesterday: “Parents say a lot of things when they’re upset.” He said the family want all Meyiwa’s children — including Khumalo’s child, Thingo — at his funeral.

“Senzo worked hard for his children. All his children are welcome in our family.”

Khumalo yesterday expressed her and her family’s condolences to Meyiwa’s family.
