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.
Full interview here.
A quip about how her affiliation made Senzo "famous" got her on Twitter trends. Twitter users said it disrespected Senzo and his legacy.
Kelly commented, "Nobody knew who Senzo Meyiwa was until he was tied to the brand 'Kelly Khumalo'."
Kelly thinks Senzo was unknown until he joined the brand. Khumalo Kelly Does Kelly know Senzo was a goalkeeper for a major club and the national team?

Senzo Meyiwa was bigger than Kelly Khumalo. Kelly was greater than Meyiwa since they had distinct careers. Halle Berry and Megan Rapinoe are apples and oranges. https://t.co/ykoDefQz5Z

We don't argue that Kelly Khumalo didn't know Senzo before meeting him. Nobody knew who he was before meeting him? So Kelly made Senzo? Disrespect to Senzo Meyiwa's legacy and family https://t.co/Yq2WX7EKCB
