Senzo's third baby mama may be a fraud

Just days after slain soccer star Senzo Meyiwa was buried, news of a third baby-mama and another love child rocked fans.

However, Drum magazine is reporting that Minenhle Mathaba may be a fraud who targets grieving families.

Minenhle visited the Meyiwa's shortly after Senzo's funeral with a baby who she claimed was Senzo's child. The Meyiwa's were expected to conduct a paternity test but nothing has been revealed yet.

In the meantime, two other families have come forward with claims that Minenhle tried to con them using the same modus operandi. In both situations, she claimed to be the daughter of men who had passed away.

The one family had a DNA test done and the results were negative. Minenhle left the next day but not before stealing a few items.

When Drum called Minenhle she denied knowing any of the people the mag mentioned, but when the mag probed her with questions she hung up.
