2014-10-30 10:25

"I saw him die in my arms. His lips turned blue, and he took a deep breath. It was not easy watching the man you love die," - that's what Kelyl Khumalo said about the death of her boyfriend Senzo Meyiwa. Today's newspapers focused on Khumalo. Watch.WATCH

Johannesburg - Slain Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa's wife has said her husband was leaving her for singer and actress Kelly Khumalo, City Press reported on Sunday.

Days before Meyiwa was killed Mandisa Mkhize told the paper she had accepted she had lost him forever.

"I respect Senzo's decision to be with Kelly Khumalo," Mkhize reportedly said in an SMS when asked if she felt betrayed after Meyiwa told her he and Khumalo had broken up.

"We did not end things on a sour note. He is the father of my daughter and despite all he is not a bad person.

"I wish him well; I am at peace with everything," she said.

In April, Meyiwa and Mkhize featured on the cover of Drum magazine, and spoke of their love for each other. The two said during an interview that they were working on their marriage and that Meyiwa had ended his relationship with Khumalo.

When Mkhize discovered her husband was back with Khumalo she moved out of their apartment in Buccleuch, Johannesburg.

Meyiwa was shot dead last Sunday, 26 October, in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni, while visiting Khumalo. Two men allegedly entered the house, demanded cellphones, and shot him before fleeing.

Khumalo told the Sunday Times Meyiwa planned to divorce Mkhize and marry her.

"I have never been loved by anyone the way Senzo loved me. He was willing to do anything for me... His heart was with me," she told the newspaper.
