Singer Kelly Khumalo has finally broken her silence after the latest developments in her late boyfriend Senzo Meyiwa's murder case. The case has been ongoing since his death in 2014. Former EFF treasurer-general Magdalene Moonsamy gave a statement that expressed her law firm will be representing Kelly Khumalo in the matter from here on out.
The statement also added that Kelly has not been implicated or charged in the matter, therefore she is not a suspect in the case.
This is contrary to the belief that she could be a suspect since leaked cellphone records from the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) showed that she had been in contact with one of the five suspects in the case.
“We note that the leaked document, has been leaked with malicious intentions and urge that neither individual nor other parties interrupt in the process of the investigation being undertaken by the police,” said Moonsamy.
Kelly's legal representative, Moonsamy also said that Kelly had been subjected to harassment over the years regarding this matter and that she has remained strong through it all. She added that Kelly appreciated the support she had been receiving from fellow South Africans to her and her children.
