It has emerged that Mandisa Mhkize didn't want to attend her husband's funeral.

Senzo Meyiwa's widow was reportedly persuaded by his father, Sam, to go to Durban and bury him.

Mandisa's friend told The Citizen: "In her view, there was no reason to attend as Senzo was already staying with another woman [Kelly Khumalo] at the time of his death." The friend added that Mandisa was not sure if she was still regarded as Senzo's wife. "Given that he had made it clear that he no longer wanted to be with her. She did not want to be seen as defying Senzo's wishes," the friend told The Citizen.

The Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana captain and goalkeeper was murdered last Sunday. He was buried in Durban on Saturday.
