"Through lead investigator Brigadier Bongani Gininda's affidavit, it states that accused 1, Muzi Sibiya, implicated Kelly Khumalo as being the person who ordered the killing of #SenzoMeyiwa. The High Court in Pretoria has just heard."

Accused number 3 also implicates Kelly Khumalo

As the court proceeded, more startling information was revealed in the case. According to the affidavit, a picture of the money paid to kill Senzo Meyiwa was found in both accused number three, Mthobisi Mncube and Kelly Khumalo's phones.

In addition, cellphone records link the Esiphambwaneni singer and Mncube and accused number five, Fisokuhle Ntuli.

Chriselda Lewis quotes Bongani Gininda:

'There is no reasonable explanation why she would be in contact with her boyfriend's killer. It is clear that she hated him. She meant killing him. A photo of money which was found in accused 3, Carlos Mncube was also found on Kelly Khumalo's phone - according to this statement from Gininda."
