Senzo Meyiwa trial: Kelly Khumalo ready to take the stand

South African singer Kelly Khumalo is ready to take to the stand and testify on what she knows about the murder of her “baby daddy”, former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa, confirmed by her attorney Magdalene Moonsamy ahead of the trial that is taking place today (22 April).

Kelly Khumalo’s attorney Magdalene Moonsamy confirmed that the singer is ready to testify at her ex-boyfriend and “baby daddy” Senzo Meyiwa’s murder trial, if required. Moonsamy was present at the trial, which had been postponed twice, to conduct a watching brief.

According to Wikipedia, a “watching brief” is a method normally used in criminal cases by lawyers to represent clients not directly a party to the suit and to function as an observer.

Five hitmen – Muzikawukhulelwa S’Tembu Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Prince Mncube, Mthokoziseni Ziphozonke Maphisa and Fisokuhle Ntuli were arrested and charged after being accused of murdering Senzo. The trial was set to start on 11 April but was postponed. This was because Advocate Zandile Mshololo – the legal representative of the fifth accused – Sifisokuhle Ntuli, indicated she was unable to proceed with the trial without sufficiently consulting.
