‘Adulterous witch’ Kelly Khumalo faces Twitter fury

2014-10-27 10:33

Actress and singer Kelly Khumalo faced the ire of Twitter users today after her boyfriend Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa was shot dead, reportedly at her home. The 27-year-old national team and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper and captain, who was married, was shot dead at about 8pm in Vosloorus yesterday. Police spokesperson Brigadier Neville Malila could not confirm earlier today whether Meyiwa was at Khumalo’s home when he was shot.

However, many Twitter users defended Khumalo. Mlacash Wamampela tweeted:

Khumalo and Meyiwa had a child together, and she also had a child with hip-hop singer Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye.

Maarohanye was found guilty of murder for killing four school children while drag racing down a Soweto street while high on drugs. This was later converted to culpable homicide. His sentence was reduced to 10 years imprisonment, two of which were suspended.

A confrontation between Khumalo and Meyiwa’s wife, Mandisa, reportedly ended with the singer’s arrest last year after she allegedly assaulted Mandisa near the Empire road offramp.

Meyiwa reportedly told police his wife had provoked Khumalo.

“Kelly had no idea that I was in a relationship. I didn’t reveal it to her. I should have known and done better. I have apologised to both Mandisa and Kelly for this,” Meyiwa said at the time.

Khumalo posted a picture of herself with Meyiwa to Instagram several hours before the shooting yesterday.

No arrests had yet been made and police were investigating a case of murder.

National police commissioner Riah Phiyega would address the media about the investigation into Meyiwa’s shooting later today.
