Mzansi singer Kelly Khumalo reacted to Advocate Malesela Teffo’s claim that she shot her ex-boyfriend, former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa at the trial which took place at the Pretoria High Court on 1 June.
Senzo Meyiwa was believed to have been killed in an armed robbery at the house of his then-girlfriend Kelly Khumalo in Vosloorus, Gauteng on 26 October 2014.
Five hitmen – Muzikawukhulelwa S’Tembu Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Prince Mncube, Mthokoziseni Ziphozonke Maphisa and Fisokuhle Ntuli were arrested and charged after being accused of murdering Senzo. The hitmen are currently on trial for Senzo’s murder. Advocate Malesela Teffo, who is representing four of the five accused, claimed that he knew a witness who could testify that Kelly was the one who shot Senzo.
“I put it to you Mr Mosia that a witness, not just a witness, an eyewitness will testify that Senzo Robert Meyiwa was allegedly shot by Nonhlanhla Kelly Khumalo by mistake, as it’s alleged,” he said.

So, how did the singer react to Advocate Teffo’s claim?
Kelly’s lawyer Magdalene Moonsamy told eNCA that the singer was quite upset to hear about Advocate Teffo’s claims.
“At first I didn’t want to call her as she was upset. When we spoke her reaction was I am a mother. My child was three months. How dare he,” she said.
She went on to say that Kelly would break her silence and she is in high spirits.
“What do they want from me. It started with claims of intimidation. She then said we are going to now break the silence,” she continued.
“She’s confident. Kelly is a person of high spirits you don’t get to that level without character development and building,” she added.
