The Senzo Meyiwa case has exploded into life this week – but these latest developments are hardly flattering for law enforcement agencies. A charge sheet, accidentally leaked to the press, reveals that the police now have Kelly Khumalo listed as somebody who will need to be investigated further.

Senzo Meyiwa: Did Kelly Khumalo hire a hitman?

The bombshell document claims that Ms Khumalo should be proved over claims that a lender gave her money ‘to pay for a hitman’. The authorities also sat they need to obtain a statement from the person accused of granting her a loan.

Furthermore, the investigating officers have highlighted their concerns over Kelly Khumalo’s cell phone records – which indicate she was in contact with the accused who appeared in court on Tuesday. The killing took place at the singer’s mother’s house, and she has rejected all allegations made against her in the past six years.

“Cell phone records of Ms Kelly Khumalo indicating her communication with the accused must be obtained, as previously indicated. It was previously mentioned that there was a lender who advanced money to Kelly Khumalo, ostensibly to pay hitmen, and that this lender was pestering her for the repayment of this loan. The lender’ statement must be obtained.”

Senzo Meyiwa case – latest news:

It comes after 24 hours of high drama with the Senzo Meyiwa case. On Monday, five suspects were arrested on multiple charges, including murder and firearm possession. Yesterday evening, Senzo’s mother and AfriForum both disputed the police’s official version of events, with Gerrie Nel claiming that an ‘assassination’ had taken place.

On Tuesday, the accused appeared in court – only to refuse to stand in the dock. All of the suspects bemoaned their treatment, claiming that Bheki Cele and SAPS had abused their Constitutional rights. Most of the five rejected legal help, with many stating that they were ‘already in prison’ when the arrests were made.
