Singer Kelly Khumalo has once again spoken out about the killing of her former boyfriend and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa, claiming the justice system has let her down and the matter needs to be put to rest.
Senzo was gunned down at Kelly's family home in Vosloorus during an alleged house robbery in 2014. There have been no arrests made in the case to date.
Singer and actress Kelly Khumalo has released a video in which she speaks her mind on Senzo Meyiwa’s death and alleges that the law is failing women in South Africa. Kelly who seems to be very emotional is drinking Controversy Gin in the video and speaks with a thick Russian accent.
Kelly says that it is tough being a woman in South Africa and claims that she is a victim of the system. She accuses the police of not doing their job regarding the murder of her lover and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa. She says the matter of Senzo’s murder needs to be put to rest and laments that the matter is still unresolved six years later. Senzo was shot and killed in a robbery on 26 October 2014.
Kelly says the system and the laws are very questionable and are failing women in a very major way in South Africa. She says people in charge need to do their job and have the crime solved. The actress argues that she is one who is suffering emotionally and professionally until the matter is resolved because the public needs to hold someone accountable.
Speaking in the video, Kelly says:
“I have become a victim of this matter for many years. Someone in charge is not doing anything.
Police spokesperson Vishnu Naidoo told TshisaLIVE the investigation into Senzo's death was ongoing and police would comment on the matter soon.
Kelly's comments come less than a week after eNCA reported that police minister Bheki Cele had appointed a team of four prosecutors to work closely with police investigating Senzo's death.
In December last year, AfriForum demanded a formal inquest into the death of the soccer star and wanted witnesses to be cross-examined.
The organisation's CEO Kallie Kriel said: “The formal inquest will give advocate [Gerrie] Nel and the interested parties the opportunity to test the evidence and cross-examine the witnesses. This will assist the magistrate in judging who was responsible for [Senzo] Meyiwa’s death.”
In January, the case once again took the spotlight when a video emerged of Longwe Twala being verbally attacked by his father, musician Chicco Twala, about the alleged theft of a cellphone.
In the first half of the video, which went viral on social media, a visibly angry Chicco can be heard saying: “I so wish it was you who killed Senzo Meyiwa so you can rot in jail.”
