Kelly Khumalo was named as a person of interest in the Senzo Meyiwa case in a damning document that was leaked on Tuesday, 27 October.
The songstress has not responded to the media frenzy that has ensued and has instead chosen to continue promoting her album. Some Mzansi social media users still showed their support to her and offered words of comfort.
Kelly Khumalo remained mum after trending for the last few days due to the ongoing Senzo Meyiwa trial. She recently took to Instagram to continue promoting her new music. Her single, Empini, is a song about being in a war. She captioned her post with some lyrics from the song which best describe her current situation.
"Empini. Lingashon’ emini (At war, it will end when the sun sets during the day)."
Social media users used the post to share words of comfort with the vocalist. Instagram user thabiso_lukhanya_khoza said:
"Ngeke baskhone lingashon emini (They will never handle us, the sun would set during the day)."
"The spirit, the confidence..."
"The love in this comment section..."
"So relevant in these trying times. Phambili voice queen. We love you."
"Yes mommy, we the strong ones, ndihamba nawe mna all the way."
"We love you so much baby girl, you are in our prayers."
Briefly.co.za had previously reported that a damning document has been leaked on social media naming Kelly Khumalo as a person of interest in the Senzo Meyiwa case. The document is an investigation diary that is not meant to be released to the public. The NPA has deemed the leak a “mistake” and have implored media houses to stop re-distributing it.
The document claims that Kelly Khumalo was in communication with a man named S Ntuli, who is one of the accused. It was mentioned that there was a lender who gave Khumalo money to “pay hitmen” and that person was pestering the singer to pay back the loan.
Advocate George Baloyi has just requested that journalists not share the document, which was distributed by mistake by the NPA. The shocking contents of the document have resulted in the NPA, SAPS and Kelly Khumalo trending on social media for all the wrong reasons. Khumalo has not commented on the developments. The case has been postponed to 27 November.
