Kelly Khumalo On Senzo Meyiwa Murder Trial
Kelly Khumalo is an integral part of the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial as the incident happened in her presence at her family’s house in Vosloorus.
It is alleged that the killer is known to Khumalo and everyone present at the shooting. Moreover, Eye Witness News reports that an eyewitness told the court that Kelly was the one who shot Senzo by mistake.
