Johannesburg – Nearly four months after the death of Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa, his family has lost the BMW X6, which they struggled to get from his girlfriend Kelly Khumulo, after failing to make payments on it, according to reports.

The Daily Sun reported that the BMW X6 was repossessed from Meyiwa’s KwaZulu-Natal home on Wednesday by Aucor Property in Durban.

According to the newspaper the family failed to settle the arrears.

The 4x4 became the centre of contention between the soccer player’s family and Khumalo after his death.

Meyiwa was shot dead on 26 October while visiting his Khumalo, in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni.

Two men entered the house as he 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," Gauteng detective unit head Major General Norman Taioe said at the time.

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

Weeks after his death Meyiwa’s father Samuel was in Johannesburg to claim his son’s belongings – but Khumalo was nowhere to be found, City Press reported.

According to police sources, the Johannesburg Metro Police and members of the task team investigating Meyiwa’s murder were looking for her, too.

The family was locked in a meeting discussing how to retrieve Meyiwa’s BMW X6 and identity document, according to reports.

Drum Magazine reported at the time that Meyiwa snr was fuming because Khumalo refuses to hand over the belongings.

Drum reported that Meyiwa told them he and other relatives are in Johannesburg “to try and reclaim all Senzo’s assets including his two cars”.

Meyiwa snr told Drum they will be joining Senzo’s younger brother, Sifiso and Senzo’s wife, Mandisa Mkhize, when collecting his son’s assets at Khumalo’s house in Spruitview, Ekurhuleni where the Bafana Bafana captain was killed.

Some of Khumalo’s friends, who didn’t want to be named, told City Press at the time that they could not reach her.

“We want to go and give her support as friends but she’s not picking up our calls. So we’ll leave her for now to give her space,” said a close friend.
