Controversial afro-pop singer Kelly Khumalo and her sister Zandile returned to court on Thursday to face their face for the assault charges laid against them by the wife of Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa.
The case was, however, postponed because the Khumalo sisters have appointed a new lawyer.
According to the Daily Sun, prosecution has been delayed due to a request by lawyer, Victor Nkhwashu, to be allowed some time to “familiarise himself with the case docket”.
Investigation into the incident that led to the charges has been concluded, with the state revealing that it’s ready to prosecute the Khumalo sisters for an alleged altercation with Meyiwa’s wife, Mandisa. The incident took place close to a major Jo’burg highway.
The court case has been postponed until 25 November.
