Kelly Khumalo’s sister Zandi Khumalo finally breaks her silence on the Senzo Meyiwa case.


after Sunday Independent reported that Senzo was allegedly “mistakenly shot” while trying to intervene in a fight between Zandi and Longwe, and that the botched robbery was apparently part of a cover-up story.

In a lengthy statement shared on her Instagram page, the “Ngeke” singer rubbished the claims that her family is withholding the identity of Meyiwa’s murderer.

She wrote: “It is very sad and hurtful that after so many years after Senzo Meyiwa’s death, we still have to defend ourselves from people who are hell-bent on the theory that we are guilty.

“It really makes one wonder if Senzo’s family and the society that says we are guilty really want justice to prevail or they just want to see the Khumalos arrested. I often think to myself that because nothing stays hidden forever if someday the person that killed Senzo gets arrested and it turns out not to be one of the people in the house as it will…. will the family and those who have crucified us be satisfied or they will continue spewing untruths”

She added: “On the allegations that he was shot while trying to intervene on a fight between me and my then boyfriend Longwe Twala, I categorically deny that. I don’t write this because I feel I owe those who have crucified us any answers, I write this because I feel that my name can’t be continued to be dragged through the mud and I keep quiet like I have something to hide.”

“What I want Senzo’s family and the society to know is that after the truth that I have told the police and the sympathy that I feel for them as they lost a hero, a son, a brother and a father after the hurt that I still feel for his passing plus the way that they treated my family since the incident I owe them nothing,” the statement read.

1/2 Tuesday 12 November Zandile Khumalo Statement on the "New developments" on the Senzo Meyiwa murder. For immediate release: Johannesburg, South Africa : It is very sad and hurtful that after so many years after Senzo Meyiwa's death we still have to defend ourselves from people who are hell bent on the theory that we are guilty. It really makes one wonder if Senzo's family and the society that says we are guilty really want justice to prevail or they just want to see the Khumalos arrested,I often think to myself that because nothing stays hidden forever if some day the person that killed Senzo gets arrested and it turns out not to be one of the people in the house as it will….will the family and those who have crucified us be satisfied or they will continue spewing untruths. On the allegations that he was shot while trying to intervene on a fight between me and my then boyfriend Longwe Twala, I categorically deny that. I don't write this because I feel I owe those who have crucified us any answers, I write this because I feel that my name can't be continued to be dragged through the mud and I keep quiet like I have something to hide. I have given police my statement, I have availed myself time and time again for interviews when the police need me, I agreed to take a lie detector test last year…..i took it without fear because I have nothing to hide. Different police have been on and off this case and all of them can't find anything that says we are guilty but unqualified people on social media think they know better. I sometimes worry about all the conspiracy theories that people make, I worry if the police will ever find these killers because people keep on messing with their investigations by introducing new theories every time. If the police have proof that I am guilty they must arrest me by all means but I will not be bullied into admitting to something that I don't know. As for the Afri Forum also now partaking on the investigations, I would like to also avail myself to them whenever they need me. Police have my Fourways address and my contact numbers should they need my KZN address. I am willing to help them so this can be resolved and everyone
