Celebs: “Stop harassing Kelly Khumalo”
Since the death of Senzo Meyiwa, many people have been attacking Kelly Khumalo on social media. Kelly was dating Senzo whilst he was still legally married to Mandisa Mkhize. The Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper was murdered on Sunday evening.
Kelly has received a lot of criticism, with some calling her a home-wrecker. Celebs have stepped up to show their support for the singer, who has been barred from Senzo’s funeral.
Metro FM DJ Criselda Kananda told Daily Sun, “Why is it anyone’s business? It was his choice to be with Kelly. Why is it always that a woman has to be sacrificed when a man cheats? It would be unfortunate if Senzo’s family don’t allow her to say goodbye. The problem in society is crime and not who has a relationship with whom.”
While Kaya FM’s Kuli Roberts told the paper, “I think it was to be expected that people would talk about her because their relationship was public, but we need to calm down.”
Boity said Senzo and Kelly’s relationship had nothing to do with other people. “I mean no disrespect to his wife and family, but people should put themselves in Kelly’s shoes. A life was lost and Kelly needs to lie low and be strong, as people will always talk,” she added.
