This past week the six-year ongoing murder court case on Senzo Meyiwa captured headlines as it seemed that there was finally a breakthrough. News outlets wrote about how five suspects were arrested. The five suspects were alleged to be hitmen hired by a “mastermind” to end Meyiwa’s life. However, the excitement quickly came to an end when the suspects made their first appearance at court. First, the suspects would not step into the pulpit. Secondly, they revealed in front of the media that they did not know why they were arrested by suggesting that they were already in jail in 2014.
But Kelly’s name seemed to be the most topical of the ongoing situation. This after a legal document was “leaked.” In the document, it stresses the importance to get access to Kelly’s phone records because it was suggested that she was the “mastermind” behind the assassination. This is not the first time the allegations have been levelled against, and when they first arose she addressed directly. Kelly reiterated her innocence and went on to showcase how the media has forgotten that she is human, and not just a headline-grabbing name to be used for clickbait.
Following the recent developments, Kelly has not used her social media platforms to address or entertain the issue. During her recent interview with MacG, Kelly made it clear that she is not interested in talking about matters that are not about her, or paint her in a light she does not like. Her stance would explain her silence on the latest development s on the Senzo Meyiwa case

But understanding the ongoing speculation and media coverage on the story, in an article shared by Sunday World, it alleges that Kelly has spoken out. Well, not Kelly per se, but her legal representation has shared a statement on the matter. Her legal representation, Magdalene Moonsamy, stated: 

“Our client notes the recent developments of which at this sad time allowed her the opportunity to remain private in the best interest of herself and children especially that of the daughter she has with Mr Meyiwa.”

Additionally stating, “We wish to place it on record that our client is not implicated nor charged in this matter and is therefore not a suspect,” she said responding to the NPA’s leaked document pointed that Khumalo was also on the police radar.”
