Senzo Meyiwa's dad 'warned' him about Kelly Khumalo

Johannesburg- It's been seven months since Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa was gunned down. But his family are still waiting for answers. 

In a recent tell-all interview with News24, Senzo's dad Sam Meyiwa opened up about how he feels that police are working at a "snails pace."

Sam also revealed that he gave police a solid lead on Senzo's killers about three weeks ago. He says the culprits are in fact hit men.

During the interview Sam also opened up about his feelings towards Senzo's then girlfriend Kelly Khumalo and how the family have not seen or heard from her since his death. 

Sam believes that Kelly has not respected the mourning period.

"If Kelly loved and respected Senzo as much as she says she did, she would have respected the mourning period. Instead, she is busy composing new songs and has released a new album. She clearly has moved on with her life," he told News24. 

Sam says that he warned his son to be careful of "girls like Kelly."

"I told him that out of all of the girls that he had dated in the past, she was the busiest. She was just uncontrollable. These days she is half naked on national television and she is just too thin, to me she is a ghost walking on earth," he added.
