Johannesburg – Police have responded to claims by songstress Kelly Khumalo that she sent them a letter regarding the death of her former boyfriend, Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates star, Senzo Meyiwa.
Senzo was gunned down at Kelly’s mother’s house in Vosloorus during an alleged house robbery in 2014. There have been no arrests made in the case to date.
In a video posted on Khumalo’s Instagram, she spoke about the toll the investigation into Senzo’s murder had taken on her. She also claimed she wrote a letter to the police about the matter but still has not received any response.
“someone in charge is not doing anything. I have written a letter to the police. No one has even bothered to answer me or say ‘Kelly we are doing something about this’,” said Khumalo.
“In relation to claims or allegations by Ms Khumalo on a video on social media about a letter written to the department of police, the ministry of police is not aware of such a letter but wishes to assure the nation that police are working around the clock to ensure that this case gets resolved,” said acting police spokesperson Brig Mathapelo Peters.
She added that Meyiwa’s murder “is still under investigation and receiving the necessary attention it deserves”.
