Singer Kelly Khumalo speaks on being implicated in baby daddy, Senzo Meyiwa's murder


Singer Kelly Khumalo speaks on being implicated in baby daddy, Senzo Meyiwa

South African singer and reality TV star, Kelly Khumalo has finally opened up on being implicated in her baby daddy and former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa's murder. 


Senzo was gunned down at Khumalo's family home in Vosloorus during an alleged house robbery in 2014. Since then, she has become a target for accusations and bullying.


City Press had also reported that a hitman linked to the murder in his confession to a magistrate 6 years after Senzo's death, alleged that the singer hatched the plot in a mall after the footballer reneged on his promise of marrying her and giving her an undisclosed amount of money. 


In an interview on Massiv Metro, DJ Sbu asked Khumalo what she would say to Senzo if she got the chance to do so. She said; 


“I don't know what to say. I think what I want to say is,: 'I would have been better off with you alive than gone'"


In an episode of her reality show which was shared after the viral hitman report, Khumalo recalled how Senzo was always in her corner and never judged her.


She said while battling tears; 


“My life took a turn for the worst and I've never really thought that in my existence I would be hated by so many so intensely. 

“Senzo was one of the people who never gave up on me no matter what. I drove him crazy, he drove me crazy, but there was never a point where that man would give up on me. Nothing was worth him giving up on me.

“At first I thought maybe if they find the killers I would feel better and maybe my life would change, but I realised that even that will not bring him back. That will never allow my daughter to have a father or me to have someone I call family, a friend who is there no matter what, irrespective of my shortcomings."


Speaking about her pain over Senzo Meyiwa with a therapist on the show, Kelly Khumalo said;


“Society has taken my loss and used it against me.

“I can't even take a picture next to a man without being accused of uzombulala (I will kill him).

“It hurts that you even think that way of me.

“You have never met me, you don't know my story, you don't know my journey. 

“There are many unsolved murders in South Africa, but this one Kelly knows, Kelly is hiding the killers. How dare you?”
