Briefly News recently reported that singer Kelly Khumalo hired an attorney to be her eyes during the ongoing murder trial of her ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Senzo Meyiwa. Her attorney Magdalene Moonsamy said that Kelly hopes to find closure for herself as well as her children.

The Bafana Bafana goalkeeper was murdered during an alleged armed robbery in October 2014 in Vosloorus. Kelly's attorney said she will ensure the court adheres to the singers' rights. She said the reason she'll be in court is to monitor what happens during the trial, and that this has been accepted by the judge and the prosecution.

Kelly's attorney also commented on the singer's well-being, saying that she is in high spirits and that she's anticipating closure for herself and, most importantly, for the nation.
