Zandie Khumalo Spills The Tea On Kelly’s Final Moments With Senzo Meyiwa After He Was Shot
A State witness has provided detailed testimony at the Pretoria High Court, shedding light on the last private moments between Kelly Khumalo and her late boyfriend, Senzo Meyiwa, the renowned football star.
During the ongoing trial against five individuals charged with the murder of Bafana Bafana captain, Senzo Meyiwa, Zandile Khumalo, Kelly’s sister, has taken the stand to provide her testimony.
The tragic incident occurred in October 2014 when Meyiwa was shot at the Khumalo residence, suspected to be the result of a robbery gone awry.
While tears streamed down her face, Zandi Khumalo recounted a heart-wrenching account, pausing intermittently to compose herself, as she vividly described the painful moment when her mother, accompanied by a doctor, delivered the devastating news of Senzo Meyiwa’s passing at Botshelong Hospital.
She said that her sister Kelly wanted to go and see Meyiwa’s body.
“My mother came towards us and she was in the company of one of the medical practitioners. I believe it was the doctor who told us that Senzo is no more. Kelly asked to go and see him and asked me to come with her.
“Kelly and I went into the room and she started talking to him [Meyiwa]. I do not remember what she said to him, she then kissed him on the forehead. She removed his earrings and I think his watch, as well.”
Zandile revealed that Kelly, after a poignant moment with Meyiwa, eventually left the room.
As the narrative unfolded, the weight of emotions intensified, with Khumalo recounting the arrival of Mandisa, whom she identified as Senzo’s wife, accompanied by a group of people.
In Khumalo’s account, she described a distressing incident where Mandisa and her companions confronted Kelly, directing blame towards her for Meyiwa’s tragic demise.
Following her extensive testimony throughout the entire day on Friday, Zandie will have to endure an anticipation of nearly a whole month before she can resume her testimony, as the proceedings were adjourned until 12 June.
