Spotlight shifts back to Kelly Khumalo

Singer Kelly Khumalo found herself in the spotlight once again as the Pretoria High Court ruled that the confessions made by two suspects in the murder of her boyfriend, soccer star Senzo Meyiwa, were admissible in court.

Judge Ratha Mokgoatlheng determined that the confessions by Muzikawukhulelwa Sibiya and Bongani Ntanzi were given freely and voluntarily, dismissing claims of coercion.

The written confessions and statements will now be used as evidence in the prosecution of the suspects.

In his confession, Sibiya detailed how he was informed by his friends, Marco Buthelezi and Makhimba Buthelezi, that they had been hired by Kelly Khumalo to kill Senzo Meyiwa for R100,000.

Sibiya recounted the events leading up to the murder, including receiving a call from Khumalo while en route to her house in Vosloorus.

He described how the hit was planned to look like a robbery, with Marco ultimately shooting Meyiwa during a struggle.

Sibiya further revealed that he received money from Marco the following day, which Marco claimed was payment from Kelly Khumalo for his involvement in the crime.

While Makhimba Buthelezi was arrested in KwaZulu-Natal, Marco was killed by police during an attempted arrest in Daveyton.

The details of the confessions shed light on the events surrounding Senzo Meyiwa’s tragic death and the alleged involvement of the suspects.

The ruling by the court to admit the confessions as evidence marks a significant development in the ongoing investigation into the murder case, bringing new insights and revelations to light.

The lead investigator, Brig Bongani Gininda, had previously presented details of the confessions in court earlier this year, setting the stage for the recent ruling by Judge Mokgoatlheng.
