Giving his side of the story on Metro Fm, he said “I’m actually saddened that my own people can do this to me, it was a robbery gone wrong.”Twala said he was actually the ‘coward’ on the day because he ran out of the house when the robbers came inside.
He said he went out looking for help from the neighbours and couldn’t call the police because his phone was left in the house.
Chicco Twala’s son Longwe described the events of that night of the robbery that Senzo Meyiwa died.
“A fight broke out because the men were manhandling Kelly,requesting money from her.”Twala revealed that Senzo was shot while he was fighting the gunmen back inside the house.
“The gunmen’s intentions was to protect themselves from Senzo, who over-powered them, as he was a strong goal keeper” he added.
Twala also revealed that he was at the house to see his girlfriend at the time Zandi, Kelly’s sister.He said his intentions was to pick up his girlfriend and leave but she insisted that he stay as the mother cooked Sunday lunch.
Later in the interview, Twala said his phone was not taken by the robbers because it in his pocket; contradicting himself from his earlier statement.
Twala also insisted that singer, Kelly Khumalo, be questioned, as she was in the house when the robbery occurred.
“I don’t understand why I’m the only one being questioned. Everyone is pointing fingers at me, Kelly should also be questioned”, he said.

Already the opening statement doesn't make sense.
A robber, pointing a gun at you won't just let you run out…#TheDriveOnMetro
