Senzo Metiwa’s brother Sifiso, says his family is not surprised by the allegations that the late Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper loved women and s3x.
S3xual accusations flew on Wednesday last week during Thobane’s cross-examination of Madlala at the high court in Pretoria. Thobane alleged that Senzo had a sexual relationship with Zandi Khumalo ( sister to Kelly Khumalo) to the shock of the nation.
Sifiso Meyiwa, spokesperson for the family, said: “We are not surprised by Tumelo Madlala’s revelation because it’s the truth, Senzo loved women.
“The allegation by [defence lawyer Tshepo] Thobane that Senzo had a sexual relationship with both Zandi [Khumalo-Gumede] and Kelly [Khumalo] is very much possible. Unfortunately, through his involvement with the Khumalo sisters he met his demise.”
Sifiso explained further: “Tumelo’s evidence is totally different from what he told us as the family. We know [that] he lied and gave a different version in court, there’s too many contradictions in his second version, unlike the first version.
“This is the worst betrayal from someone who claimed to be Senzo’s friend. But we’re also not surprised because he [has] distanced himself from us.
“Despite all of this, we will not lose the hope. We are also not expecting those who were inside the house to tell the truth, but the neighbors. I still emphasize that the five men in the dock are not the culprits.”
“That witness will come and tell the court that Kelly instructed Zandi to guard Senzo while she was busy with her music career,” Thobani said to Madlala.
“The same witness will come and tell the court that Senzo was complaining about the way Kelly was doing things. The witness will testify that Senzo ended up having a relationship with Zandi. He had a sexual relationship with Zandi because Kelly was always away for longer periods.”
Madlala responded: “I would never deny or admit that because Senzo loved women.”
