Kelly Khumalo responds to trolls amid Senzo Meyiwa murder trial

Popular South African singer Kelly Khumalo is not in the business of entertaining anyone asking or trolling her about the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial.

The Ngathwala Ngaye singer, who was present the fateful night her boyfriend at the time and the former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper was gunned down at her mother’s house in Vosloorus, told Twitter users where to get off (literally) when they asked about the recent developments in the trial.

On Thursday, 27 July, the State’s fourth witness, Colonel Lambertus Steyn, testified that he found two phone call records on one of Kelly Khumalo’s cellphones from a number linked to accused number five, Fisokuhle Ntuli. The first call was made on 2 August 2014, the other call was made on 15 October 2014 which is 11 days before Meyiwa was slain.

Steyn is a data analyst and investigation officer at the South African Police Services (SAPS) Cold Case Unit. He focused on cellphone data records of people who were with Meyiwa on the night he was killed.

He also established contact between suspects, Muzikawukhulelwa Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Prince Mncube, and Sifisokuhle Nkani Ntuli – disputing their claims that they had not known each other.

Muzikawukhulelwa Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Prince Mncube, Mthokoziseni Maphisa, and Sifisokuhle Nkani Ntuli are standing trial for premeditated murder, attempted murder, robbery with aggravating circumstances, possession of firearms without a licence and possession of ammunition.

The court also heard that Meyiwa’s SIM card had been swapped a day after the incident and the new SIM card was used in former Kaizer Chiefs footballer David Mathebula’s handset.

Steyn found that eight calls were made between David Mathebula’s phone and Kelly Khumalo, he however said it could be an old phone in which they had inserted the SIM card. He also told the court he could not say who was making the calls as they were all “call forwards” meaning they were not picked up because the phone was off or the other phone had no signal.

When a Twitter user asked Kelly about her link to the accused, she responded: “Hamba uyozilahla okujuleni kolwandle”. Which loosely translates to “Go jump in the deepest part of the ocean.”

Another tweep said to the musician: “You bloody girl, your day is coming. An eye for an eye, trust me.” To which Kelly replied: “Yours is also coming.”
