According to Khanye, HHP’s helper and her son, as well as two of her son’s friends who spent the night at HHP’s house were woken up in the early hours of Sunday morning to the sounds of someone breaking into the house.

“I got a call from the traumatised kids who told me that someone was breaking into the house. When [the robbers] were chased out, the four were taken in by a caring neighbour. She kept them there until we picked them up,”Khanye said in an interview with SowetanLive.

It’s the first time the rapper’s former partner has spoken out publicly since his death.

While Leano, her son with the late rapper, was not at the house at the time of the incident, she says he has been left traumatised by the incident his friends were forced to endure.

“Leano was not there because he had slept at my parents’ place. He was shattered and could not sleep thinking about his friends,” she said, adding that her son was being adversely affected by the ongoing drama between Sengadi and the Tsambo family.

Khanye says that when Leano’s friends went back to the Randpark Ridge home to fetch their belongings, they were under constant supervision and, in some instances, Sengadi allegedly had to approve some of the items before they could taken.

Sengadi took the Tsambo family to court in a bid to have the Motswako rapper’s funeral halted. While that bid failed, the court found that she had indeed entered into a customary marriage with HHP and as such was his wife.

Sengadi’s lawyer Ndileka Ngoqo-Sithole has denied the break-in allegations.
