Lucia Mthiyane who hooked up Senzo Meyiwa with Kelly Khumalo speaks out

South African actress and singer, Lucia Mthiyane has distanced herself from Kelly Khumalo.

“I want nothing to do with her or the allegations she’s made. I refuse to comment on this issue,” actress and singer, Lucia told the publication.

On Tuesday, 5 July, Kelly claimed that she had no idea who Senzo was until a friend told her about him.

She also claimed Senzo dumped his wife, Mandisa Mkhize, for her.

“Nobody knew who Senzo was until he was attached to the brand Kelly Khumalo,” Kelly said in a TV interview. In his biography of Senzo, Decoding 666_9, The Inexplicable life of Senzo Meyiwa, Soweto Mandlanzi said Senzo and Kelly met at a function.

“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.”

Soweto said Kelly met Senzo’s mother and it was clear she wasn’t welcomed into the Meyiwa family.

“At that point, Kelly was already aware of Senzo’s wife.”
