Senzo Meyiwa’s brother ‘defends’ Kelly Khumalo
Sifiso Meyiwa, the brother of the deceased Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa, has made serious allegations against the lead investigator of his brother’s case, Brigadier Bongani Gininda. He has accused Gininda of dishonesty, stating that he is lying about the circumstances surrounding his brother’s death.
These accusations came after Gininda claimed that Kelly Khumalo, Senzo’s then-girlfriend, had orchestrated the hit on Senzo. However, Sifiso firmly believes that the person who shot his brother was present in the house at the time of the incident, and that the individuals in the room during the shooting are allegedly protecting the killer.
The Court Proceedings and Sifiso’s Stance
During the trial of Meyiwa at the North Gauteng High Court on Wednesday, 24 January, Gininda read his affidavit, revealing that Kelly had ordered the hit on Senzo. Despite this revelation, Sifiso maintains that he will never believe that Kelly was responsible for ordering the hit on his brother.
He stated, “I said that in 2019 and I’m still saying that today and I will keep saying it until it is proven because we have evidence. I know Gininda is lying. That’s how he works. Most people don’t know Brigadier Gininda. I know him, and I have been following his cases. He does not know that I know him as well as I know him.”
Sifiso’s Theory on the Murder
Sifiso further elaborated on his theory, stating that Kelly did not hire hitmen to kill Senzo. Instead, he believes that the person who shot Senzo was in the house at the time of the shooting and that this person is being protected.
Senzo Meyiwa was tragically shot at his then-girlfriend Kelly’s home in Vosloorus in 2014, and his family is still seeking answers about who was behind the murder. Sifiso argued that if hitmen were hired to kill Senzo, they would not have used a single bullet, but several, as is common practice among contract killers.
He concluded by saying, “It’s impossible for the hitmen to enter the house and shoot with one bullet. Gininda is just playing with us, and we are not children.”
