This follows after state witness and Meyiwa's best friend Tumelo Madlala, told the court that he overhead Chicco asking Kelly if she didn't want to go on holiday.

''I am not sure about the day but Chicco came. Both Kelly and I were not feeling well. He came in and started speaking with Kelly. I could not hear their conversation properly but I overheard Chicco asking Kelly if she does not want to go on holiday overseas,’’ said Madlala.

Madlala's testimony raised eyebrows and left many people wondering why Chicco had offered to pay Kelly a vacation.

Speaking to SowetanLIVE, Chicco said he suggested it because he wanted her to go and distress because Meyiwa's death hit her hard. 

"When Senzo died, no one wanted Kelly. She was crying all the time. If you are rejected by the family of the father of your child what would you do?  I had to try and give her support," Twala said.

Madlala also detailed their trip to the hospital saying that they had to put Senzo inside the car, but his body was heavy.

"We tried to pick him up but he was heavy. I was at the back, behind him. In the car, his head lay on me, and in the middle it was Mthokozisi Twala [another friend of Meyiwa]. On the side, it was Zandi,” Madlala testified.

“She said I must place it on the hole [gunshot wound] where the blood was coming out. Kelly was driving and she was hitting [speed] humps. Zandi reprimanded her. I think there was blood coming [out] from the hole, because there were newspapers in the car and they had blood on them.”

Madlala said a nurse asked to speak to an adult and Kelly's mom went inside, but she came out crying and told them that Senzo had died.

“She came back to us crying and told us that Senzo was no more, and everyone started crying,”
