Senzo Meyiwa’s parents have been struggling to get by since they lost their son, but thankfully Ndlovukazi has lent them a helping hand.
The Maskandi star had heard about how tough things had become for the Meyiwa family since Senzo’s father, Sam had a stroke, so she decided to help them out.
The Meyiwa family were brought to tears when Ndlovukazi arrived at their home with R6000 worth of groceries just for them.
The artist, whose real name is Thandolwenkosi Mbatha, received a warm welcome from the community, fans, ANC members as well as ward councillor, Thandiwe Zuma.
Briefly.co.za learned that she was heartbroken to hear that Sam is now confined to a wheelchair and has struggle talking since his stroke, so she was compelled to do something for them.
According to The Sowetan, since Sam’s stroke, no one in the family is unemployed so she felt that it was the least that she could do and will continue to buy groceries for until the end of the year.
Senzo had a R4 million life insurance policy with the Pirates Football Club, which was paid out in 2016, sadly, his parents didn’t get anything from it.
The money was split between the football club and his kids, without any of it going to his parents or wife.
Ndlovukazi revealed that Sam had an emotional breakdown when he realized what she had done for him and his family, and she is glad that she could even if it’s a little bit.
Since her visit to the Meyiwa family, the muso has pleaded with surrounding businesses and communities to offer any assistance that they can to the family during their hardship.
