Controversy with Kelly Khumalo

The former Rhythm City actress and chef Lucia Mthiyane has distanced herself from Senzo Meyiwa’s baby mama and singer Kelly Khumalo. Mthiyane is responding to Khumalo’s claims that the late soccer star had no idea who she was. But had seen her talking to Mthiyane and asked for her numbers. This was a report from Soweto, in Meyiwa’s recent biography.

At that time Kelly’s music career had not reached its peak but Senzo’s name was already a big brand among soccer fans,” said Soweto. He said Lucia and Senzo were both from Umlazi in Durban. According to Soweto. When they first met, Senzo wasn’t really clued up about who Kelly was. But he had seen her speaking with Lucia.

“He asked Lucia for Kelly’s number. Lucia orchestrated the meeting between Senzo and Kelly,” he said. Soweto dismissed Kelly’s claim that Senzo dumped his wife for her. He said: “It is not true that Senzo dumped his wife for her. I found that Senzo tried so many times to break up with Kelly. But, it was impossible because Kelly would drive to Senzo’s place at night, wanting to see him.”

Moreover, Soweto said Kelly met Senzo’s mother. And, that it was clear she wasn’t welcomed into the Meyiwa family. “At that point Kelly was already aware of Senzo’s wife.”

However, in response to the claims by Kelly, Lucia said: “I want nothing to do with her or the allegations she’s made. I refuse to comment on this issue,”
