Singer Kelly Khumalo said she did everything she possibly could to save the life of her late boyfriend, Senzo Meyiwa.
She was speaking to fans at her Up Close and Personal with Kelly Khumalo concert in Johannesburg on Thursday.
Khumalo said she, Meyiwa and friends went to her mother’s place for Sunday lunch in Vosloorus on October 26, 2014.
“It was a great day. We were having a great day. Just as we were about to leave, there was a bang at the door and the door open3e and two guys walked in. One pointed a gun at me, demanded money and cellphones and I ran to my sister’s room. He followed me, I pushed the door, trying to close it, he pushed back and I pushed again.
“Until today I do not know why he gave up on pushing but he did for some reason,” she said.
Khumalo said while she was trying to run for her life she forgot about her children.
“Later on I realised that my children were in the house. When I opened the door my mom, Senzo and his friends were fighting the intruders. My son watched it all happen,” she said.
She said during the scuffle she heard two gunshots and immediately went to the other room to check her son.
“Then Senzo ran into my hands. I thought he was trying to protect me from the intruders but he had blood on his chest and back; that’s when I knew he had been shot.
“We couldn’t even wait for the ambulance to arrive. We rushed him to hospital. I did everything I could. I didn’t want him to think I gave up on him,” she said, sobbing.
Meyiwa was a Bafana Bafana goalkeeper and captain and one of the most beloved soccer players in the country.
His killers are still at large.
