South Africans were incredulous

After listening to Mngomezulu's claims, netizens poked holes in the theory.

Xuffler said:

"They've been singing that song and no arrests have been made."

Exposed asked:

"How did we go from Kelly Khumalo paying people to kill Senzo to Longwe being the one with a gun? Why are we hearing 'witnesses were involved' when no one witnessed anything?"

DefenceAdvocate said:

"This one did not prepare, so he came with his conspiracy theories instead of cross-examining the witness. Mngomezulu is shameless."

Elvis Malakoane said:

"This case is going in different directions with new episodes and characters. You'd swear the shooting incident took place a week ago."

MokoneM said:

"It still doesn't explain why Kelly was in contact with the accused."
