Trouble brewing for Kelly Khumalo as Police Minister Bheki Cele gives an update on Senzo Meyiwa case


Police Minister Bheki Cele says that although he has no time frame, a positive outcome is coming with respect to the killing of South African football star Senzo Meyiwa.

This is not the first time that Cele has made such promises of progress.

“I knew that this question was going to come, that case is going to be resolved,” he said during a question-and-answer session on Newzroom Afrika on Sunday night.

This comes after an anonymous viewer sent in a question via email asking “what is happening with the Senzo Meyiwa case?”

“The issue of this case was that there was a lot of interference with it initially, but I believe we have begun to clear the system, and definitely positive results will be announced on the case.

“I would not put a time frame, but a positive outcome is coming,” Cele said.

Meyiwa was killed during a robbery, nearly six years ago at his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s home in October 2014.

Five others were present at the time, it was earlier reported.

Meyiwa’s distraught father Sam died from a second stroke in July 2019 without seeing justice in the murder of his son.

This is not the first time that Cele has made such promises of progress.

Following the death of Sam Meyiwa, Cele visited the Meyiwa home in Umlazi, Durban, where he told a contingent of journalists outside the home that “there is good progress in the case”.

Cele further told journalists: “What I will do this time is stand by [the fact] that the case will be solved.”

The family of the slain Bafana Bafana star recently turned to lobby group, AfriForum for assistance in their pursuit of justice.

AfriForum called on the National Prosecuting Authority to recommend a formal inquest into the death of football star.

“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 Meyiwa’s death,” CEO Kallie Kriel previously said.

Recently the South African police threw Kelly Khumalo under the bus after declining having received a letter from the singer inquiring about Senzo Meyiwa’s murder investigations.

The controversial songbird who is at the centre of Senzo’s murder case recently lambasted the police for allegedly not doing their job, citing that the culprits who killed her former boyfriend have not yet been brought to book.

Kelly posted a video claiming to have written a letter to the police regarding Senzo’s death but had not received a responce from them.

‘Someone in charge is not doing anything. I have written a letter to the police. No one has even bothered to answer me or say ‘Kelly we are doing something about this.’

‘They don’t have to walk a day in my shoes. I have the whole country that hates me, that swears at me every day. Do I deserve this? No, I don’t. Again, as a woman, the law in this country is failing me,’ said an emotional Kelly.

In a statement acting police spokesperson Brig Mathapelo Peters dismissed reports that police received a letter from Kelly regarding Senzo’s death
