Senzo takes Kelly Khumalo’s side, tells cops wife provoked her

Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa may have dealt a blow to the state’s case when he told the Hillbrow police that his wife, Mandisa, was the one who had provoked his mistress, Kelly Khumalo, resulting in a cat fight.

Khumalo appeared in the Hillbrow Magistrates’ Court this morning after she allegedly assaulted Mandisa about two months ago.

The case was postponed to November 25 for trial.

City Press can reveal that Meyiwa yesterday told Hillbrow police Mandisa was the one who had provoked Khumalo.

A police officer close to the case said Meyiwa, who was accompanied by a friend, told the police that he had phoned Khumalo to meet with her next to the Buccleuch off-ramp near Sandton.

He said he drove on to the highway after Khumalo had phoned and told him she was approaching the off-ramp.

He said Mandisa followed them after spotting their cars driving on the highway towards Johannesburg.

Meyiwa said that, as he was driving on the highway with Khumalo in tow, Mandisa tried to sandwich her BMW 1 series between their cars.

He said Khumalo accelerated and blocked her.

Meyiwa said Mandisa continued to do so until she bumped into Khumalo’s car.

He said that he and Khumalo parked next to the Empire off-ramp to ask her what she was doing.

Meyiwa said that Khumalo, who was incensed by Mandisa’s behaviour, got out of the car and screamed at her.

“Kelly screamed and said ‘Hey wena! Wenzani? Ufuna ukungibulala’ (What are you doing? Do you want to kill me?). He said Khumalo then pulled Mandisa by her hair after a short screaming match and a fight broke out,” said the officer.

The officer also said Meyiwa had separated them when they exchanged blows.

This contradicts the state’s version that Khumalo had maliciously damaged Mandisa’s car as she was driving recklessly on the road.
