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

Lucia Mthiyane, a singer and actress from South Africa, has cut ties with 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, July 5, Kelly stated that before a friend informed her of Senzo, she was unaware of his existence.

She further asserted that Senzo left 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.”
