Cape Town – Mzansi has reacted with shock and disgust, as the court heard allegations of Senzo Meyiwa being in a sexual relationship with Kelly Khumalo and her sister Zandile (Zandi) during the murder trial.
The allegations topped Twitter trends on Thursday and Friday morning, as the trial continued at the North Gauteng High Court.
The hashtag Zandi was still one of the top Twitter trends on Friday morning, after advocate Tshepo Timothy Thobane, counsel for four of the five men arrested for the murder, dropped the bombshell in court.
Thobane put it to state witness Tumelo Madlala that Meyiwa, who was married, was also involved in a sexual relationship with both of the Khumalo sisters.
The allegation reportedly came out when advocate Tshepo Timothy Thobane, who is representing four of the five accused was cross questioning state Madlala on Thursday.
This was after Madlala pointed one of the accused, Bonging Ntanzi as the second intruder, who stormed the Vosloorus house in October 2014 where the soccer star was murdered.
However, Thobane dismissed the intruder version of events, arguing that Meyiwa was having an affair with both Kelly and Zandi and that the affair was the centre of the goalie’s murder, reported IOL.
He added that a witness will testify that Zandi was living with Kelly and Meyiwa, the report said.
“That witness will testify that at the end, Senzo ended up having a sexual relationship with Zandi as well. Kelly was being away for a long time,” the report quoted Thobane as saying.
However, Madlala could not confirm or deny the allegations but acknowledged that Senzo loved women.
As the trial continued, Thobane further alleged that Longwe Twala “was not happy” with the love trial angle, reported EWN.
“Longwe was not happy with that. I put it to you that Longwe came to the house upset and an argument ensued between him, Kelly, Zandile and the deceased. I further put it to you that in that process, that’s when the gun went off,” the report quoted Thobane.
But Madlala denied any knowledge of the argument, saying he didn’t see it.
So the Advocate for accused 1-4 is suggesting that Kelly Khumalo killed Senzo Meyiwa because he was sleeping with Zandi? And maybe its the real reason why Kelly and Zandi dont talk. #SenzoMeyiwatrial #SenzoMeyiwa
