South African singer Kelly Khumalo has spoken out for the 1 millionth time about her version of events from the night Senzo Meyiwa was murdered in her mother’s home. And also, for exactly the 1 millionth time, Black Twitter made it clear that they did not believe her.
In short, kuTense
In long: Kelly Khumalo spoke to eNCA on Wednesday morning where she not only retold her account of the reported robbery that left her boyfriend dead. The Bafana #1 was allegedly slain by robbers who had attempted to break into the Vosloruus residence. Among calls for Kelly Khumalo to be questioned, the afro-soul star slammed any suggestion that she would cover up for whoever killed Senzo Meyiwa on that fateful day in October 2014.
She came out defiantly during her interview with Xoli Mgambi and said:
Despite making numerous attempts to clear her name, Kelly Khumalo’s doubters remain convinced that there is more to her story than she has told authorities. Entire conspiracy theories have put her at the heart of a cover up effort that involves her sister, Longwe and Chicco Twale, a few police officers, and who knows who else.
While the theory has never been tried and tested in court, fans have seemingly made up their minds and decided that Kelly was fully responsible for Senzo’s murder.
Her latest statement, by the looks of things, did nothing to change that.
Haibo this is new INFORMATION in my ears?So Kelly Khumalo’s son was there when Senzo was killed ?Kanti how old was he at that time? If a child can see a resemblance on the TV n remember, then Kelly Khumalo definitely knows who killed Senzo??♀️?#KellyKhumalo pic.twitter.com/hNmHxAE6KF— nela_mbambo (@nela_mbambo) November 12, 2019
Kelly Khumalo's tactics will not work for her this time around. She can write another song and do another prime TV special interview, it just won't cut it. We want people prosecuted and tried for the murder of Senzo Meyiwa. We don't want interviews.— Shumi ley'nkezo Ngubane. (@Maqhawe_Ngubane) November 12, 2019
She must shut up.
Many spectators believe that ever since Afriforum vowed to investigate Senzo’s unsolved murder, that a conviction is closer than ever. And you don’t have to guess who they believe is suspect #1…
Kelly Khumalo and her Family are gonna need the real Adv Barry Roux to drag this case because they're definitely not gonna win it Gerrie Nel doesn't play games ask the guy that brought an entire door to court #SenzoMeyiwa— khartel Vladimirovna (@Khati_Khartel) November 5, 2019
