Zandie Khumalo on the Meyiwa murder trial
Zandie Khumalo reiterated her position on her request for a media blackout, saying, “Whether there is a camera there or not, I’m just there to testify.” Regarding her application to prevent the media from airing her testimony during the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial last month, singer Zandie Khumalo has spoken out. She claimed that she was only acting within the bounds of her state witness privilege in an interview with eNCA. “This is a democratic country, I was just exercising my rights, and I feel that even the court took about two days for the plea,” the defendant said. They determined that I was actually within my rights to exercise that, so I’m not sure why it’s suddenly causing a fuss that I do so given that I live in a democratic nation.
In response to her plea, which ultimately did not go her way because Judge Tshifhiwa Maumela decided that audio content would still be broadcast, Zandie was responding to the harsh abuse she had experienced on social media. “My family and I have tried to describe what happened in detail on every possible platform. However, it appears that they make their own decisions and choose what they listen to. I thought, “I don’t owe anyone anything right now because they’ve had their chance, and now the only people that I need to testify before is just the court.” So I said, “They’ve had their chance.” I’m just there to testify, whether or not there is a camera there. That’s it.
Meyiwa was a goalkeeper for the Orlando Pirates and the Bafana Bafana when he was shot dead in October 2014 during what was allegedly a botched robbery in front of his then-girlfriend Kelly Khumalo, her mother Ntombi, sister Zandie, Zandie’s boyfriend Longwe Twala, and Meyiwa’s friends Mthokozisi Thwala and Tumelo Madlala. The brother of the murdered footballer, Sfiso Meyiwa, told Daily Sun that they had been anxiously anticipating the day the Khumalos testify.
