Kelly Khumalo at the season 3 launch of 'Life with Kelly Khumalo' in Rosebank on 2 July 2022.

Kelly Khumalo made headlines Monday when she opened up about Senzo Meyiwa, the pending murder trial, and how the criminal justice system failed to protect her from death threats.

In an exclusive interview with eNCA, Kelly didn't hold back.

The singer discussed Senzo and how she's been coping.

"Our country has a problem, and it's not Kelly Khumalo. This is about a person at the lowest and darkest place, losing loved ones and not getting justice.

"The law's failure is my lowest moment." As a South African, I trust the law to protect me, my family, and society. In my case, my life and family have been threatened several times. I feel like the law isn't protecting me and my family, said Kelly.

The singer also said she still misses Senzo and feels he would have been a great father to Thingo, now 8.

Meyiwa was killed in Vosloorus in October 2014.
