Chicco Twala speaks on Senzo Meyiwa’s murder

South African music producer, Sello Chicco Twala says his son, Longwe Twala, Kelly Khumalo, and others who were present during Senzo Meyiwa’s murder know the truth about who killed Senzo Meyiwa.

Twala was arrested and released on R2000 bail after he allegedly pointed a firearm at City Power technicians in Bloubosrand, Johannesburg.

In an interview with Newzroom Afrika regarding his arrest, Twala said it pains him that people are tarnishing his name when he wasn’t even there when Senzo Meyiwa was murdered.

The producer said he wasn’t part of the 8 people including his son. He received a call from Kelly Khumalo and went to assist.

“My son, Kelly Khumalo, and the others who were present know the truth. Someone cannot be shot in their presence and they are all silent about it. They know who killed Senzo; my son knows, Kelly knows and everyone else who was there knows.

I must be excluded, I was not there and I am not part of it. I have said it before as well that I am not going to protect my son; if he is the murderer trust me I will come out in support of all the people who want the perpetrators to be jailed. I will never protect him.”

Social media users have alleged that Longwe Twala is the one who shot Meyiwa and that Chicco is shielding him from going to jail. Many theories have surfaced, especially since the Netflix documentary Senzo: Murder of a Soccer Star, debuted.

In a statement circulated on social media, Twala said that his arrest is a “victory” for him and a “defeat” for the “evil” people who have linked him to Meyiwa’s murder.

Finally I got arrested for pointing a toy gun [at] two men whom I thought were cable thieves who caused a blackout to six houses at my recording studios. I am texting from my cell as we speak, waiting for my lawyers to bail me…To my haters, have fun and celebrate my arrest.”
