Mantwa Khoza Personal Life
Mantwa Khoza and Irvin Khoza got married decades ago.
The couple together produced three children: named Sonono Khoza, Mpumi Khoza and Nkosana Khoza, including one grandchild named Thandekile Matina Zuma who later became Irvin Khoza’s wife.
They had one child Zodwa Khoza who served as the Orlando Pirates club’s brand manager and died multiple organ failure at the Louis Pasteur Hospital in Pretoria at the age of 30. Her mother and two brothers were at her bedside.
“To lose a wife is to lose a life partner, a love companion and a friend indeed. It is the end of a significant part of oneself; the end of an entire life in you. The pain Dr. Khoza is going through is truly incomprehensible and can never be fully expressed in words,” Ndlozi said in a statement.
“To the children and the rest of the family: a mother is a powerful tree, providing shade of comfort in good and bad times. To lose a mother is thus one of the greatest losses anyone can ever experience. We feel their pain and pray for great strength for them”.
“Finally, we express our condolences to the entire Orlando Pirates FC family; Mama was as important to them as she was to the entire Khoza family”,
