Zandie Khumalo’s Testimony Draws Public Criticism

Yesterday, the Pretoria High Court watched an emotional Zandie Khumalo confronting all of the accused in court. Khumalo allegedly left no stone unturned as she recounted the terrible evening when Bafana Bafana goalie Senzo Meyiwa was slain.

According to the social media excitement, scorn, and fury, singer Zandie Khumalo’s testimony may have been a little lukewarm for the fans’ liking. This follows huge discrepancies in her and the other accused’s evidence on the day Senzo Meyiwa was shot.

During a confrontation between Khumalo and the accused, she then proceeded to question them for the great distress they have caused, including taking Meyiwa’s life. However, Judge Tshifiwa Maumela immediately intervened and recalled Khumalo from her emotional state.

“Do you know what you have done to our lives? Do you even know what you have done?” said Zandie Khumalo

Shortly after Khumalo gathered herself, she then proceeded the narrate and detail how the accused entered their Vosloorus residence and demanded some of their belongings and assets, including money and cell phones. Khumalo then claimed that was the exact moment when things went south inside the house between the accused, herself, Kelly Khumalo, Tumela Madlala, and the late Senzo Meyiwa.

What has hit a raw nerve with scores of tweeps and people, in general, is how Zandie Khumalo claimed to have not seen the suspects since they were wearing masks. In her Interview with Silindelo Masikane of the eNCA in July 2022, Khumalo said the suspects who entered her home were wearing masks half of the time and none of them had dreadlocks.

“I have an ask, in that exclusive interview with @Sli_MasikaneZandi Khumalo said she couldn’t recognize or identify the suspects because they were wearing masks, so how did she identify accused number 2 in court today at the #SenzoMeyiwatrial #SenzoMeyiwa” wrote The Instigator

However, in court yesterday, she alleged that accused number two, who happens to have dreadlocks, was the major character on the day Meyiwa was shot. Following her statement yesterday, Khumalo has exposed herself to public scrutiny.

“Abo Zandi Khumalo was running around barking like puppy dogs now big dogs are coming, she’s got her tale between the legs… sies migodoyi #SenzoMeyiwatrial” wrote Mahlubi Stephen
