Zandie Khumalo controversy
A few years ago, the two singing sisters made headlines when Zandile took to Instagram to blast her sister- Kelly whom she branded as “toxic” and “in need of help” and further declared that she was “divorcing” her.
Zandie’s announcement came shortly after Kelly made damning allegations against her brother-in-law and Zandie’s husband- Mhlo Gumede whom she accused of allegedly used her name to swindle money from an event organizer.
After years of acting like bitter exes where they ignored each other on social media and openly talked smack about each other, the Khumalo sisters appear to have finally mended their differences and are slowly rekindling their relationship.
The two sisters were both present on the night when Senzo Meyiwa was murdered in Kelly Khumalo’s house and were subjects of interest during his murder trial which began in 2022.
