Kelly Khumalo has revealed that she is ready to appear in court if she is called as a witness in the murder trial of Senzo Meyiwa. This was revealed by her lawyer Magdalene Moonsamy who is attending the trial on a watching brief.
Moonsamy said to the media . “That will depend on the prosecution, if the prosecution requires her as a witness in court, she is a witness in the matter and she is being compliant and cooperative in the matter, so if she is required to be present in court then she will be.” Meyiwa died in 2014 at his then girlfriend Kelly Khumalo mother’s home in Vosloorus, East Rand.
It was then reported that Senzo was a victim of a botched robbery. However, recent allegations are that his assassination was a contract hit. The five men who are accused of assassinating Meyiwa returned to the North Gauteng High Court on Friday for trial continuation. Senzo Meyiwa’s family and friend are still waiting for answers on who killed Senzo.
The five men who were arrested were then charged for murder, attempted murder, robbery with aggravated circumstances, unlawful possession of a firearm, and possession of ammunition charges, but they all pleaded not guilty to all the charges. Looking back to the start of Senzo Meyiwa’s case, Kelly Khumalo’s old son wiwas only three years old when Senzo Meyiwa was murdered in cold blood.
Speaking during an interview with the media in 2018, Kelly Khumalo revealed that her son still remembers Senzo Meyiwa and the people who killed him as he was there when Senzo was murdered.
“My son remembers Senzo very well. He asks about him. Every now and then I need to make up a story because I feel he’s not ready to know what happened. At some point, he saw some guys who were put on TV and he said: ‘I don’t like those uncles. They killed my father’ .”
“My son was there. He remembers the people and what they looked like. That memory stayed with him until today,” Kelly Khumalo said. But still Kelly refused for his son to be interrogated by the police after the murder took place.
