Twitter users launch vicious attack on girlfriend Kelly

2014-10-28 00:00

SINGER Kelly Khumalo faced a backlash from Twitter users yesterday after the Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa was gunned down at her Vosloorus home on Sunday night.

While tributes were pouring in for Meyiwa, many people launched a vicious attack on Khumalo while others sympathized with Meyiwa’s wife, Mandisa Mkhize.

@Bayanda_B said: “I feel sorry for #SenzoMeyiwa’s wife who had to deal with a cheating hubby & now his death, as for #KellyKhumalo can go swim with the sharks.”

Highveld FM presenter Anele Mdoda said: “Theres no dignity in trivialising his death and [giving] dignity to side dishes #SenzoMeyiwa had a wife and [she] wasn’t Kelly Khumalo!”

Another user said that if Meyiwa, who has a young child with Khumalo, had stayed at home and enjoyed the company of his wife, none of this would have happened.

Some users sympathised with her.

Metro FM presenter Pearl Thusi tweeted: “Wow guys. If there was ever a time to not use social media to hurt someone, it’s now. If you’re not here to support Kelly then just shut up.”
