Senzo Meyiwa was shot and killed on 26 October 2014 at the home of his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s mother in Vosloorus. At the time of his death, seven adults whom Senzo knew were in the home. The witnesses – including Kelly – maintain that intruders killed the star in a botched robbery.
In the midst of commentary surrounding the Senzo Meyiwa trial, one tweep reposted a video of Kelly Khumalo claiming her son knows the identity of the murders.
Christian – whose father is Moja Love presenter Jub Jub – was three years old at the time of Senzo’s death.
“At some point, he saw some guys who were put on TV and he said: ‘I don’t like those uncles. They killed my father’ .
The interviewer – Ayanda-Allie Paine – did not question Kelly further on who the men supposedly were.
Which begs the question amongst many South Africans: could Kelly Khumalo’s son possess key information on who shot and killed Senzo Meyiwa?
IS KELLY HIDING SOMETHING?
With the murder trial in full swing and hot on the heels of Netflix doccie: Senzo Meyiwa: Murder of a Soccer Star, many tweeps are convinced that Kelly knows more than she is willing to reveal.
Some have even recalled a moment in the documentary where Kelly Khumalo refused to let her son Christian chat to police about what he saw
@TTigersstor: The interviewer dropped the ball here. And remember Kelly didn’t want her kid to describe the killers to the sketch artist
@Pinks34815884: “The fact that Kelly didn’t want her son to be interviewed is alarming. Kids tell the truth as it is”
@BeanBLAQ: “Gotta ask yourself why Kelly Khumalo doesn’t want the key witness, being the son, to talk to cops. And also might be the reason why she doesn’t want him to see Jub Jub. She’s hiding something”
