Kelly Khumalo celebrates 35th birthday with sorrowr


For the most part of her career in the entertainment industry, Kelly Khumalo has had it rough.

Her love life has, unfortunately, overridden her impressive artistic talents and endeavours.

But having personal traits such resilience and courage, Kelly Khumalo has frequently come out shining at the end of the tunnel.

Yesterday was Kelly Khumalo’s 35th birthday, but we have known her for only 15 years.

In those years we have seen her slay every project that she has partaken in, from acting to singing and as well as motherhood, Kelly stays slaying!


After a series of public scrutiny and bashing on social media that is still ongoing, Kelly deserves a break; especially since it is her day after all.

Earlier on Monday, the mother of two was the number one trending subject on Twitter.

This was a vicious move by Tweeps who suggested that Kelly knows who killed her baby daddy, Senzo Meyiwa at her childhood home.

While some were on that negative tip, others were kind and thoughtful enough to wish MaKhumalo a happy birthday.


According to media reports, Kelly Khumalo and her sister and Chicco Twala’s son could all be arrested for allegedly lying about who really killed Senzo Meyiwa.

Last week City Press reported that the police now believe one of the people present in the house where Senzo was gunned down, is the culprit and that everyone present lied to police about who really killed the former Orlando Pirates goal keeper.

In a lengthy audio recording, obtained by City Press, a senior executive in the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) tells a member of Meyiwa’s family that the police will again question those who were in the house at the time of Meyiwa’s murder.

The executive is heard saying that the people who were in the house when Meyiwa was gunned down lied when they made their original statements to the police in saying that a robbery had taken place.

“The crucial evidence was lost ages ago and all the witnesses who were in the house at the time of the shooting lied when they said there was an armed robbery when Senzo was fatally shot,” says the NPA executive in the recording.

Many South Africans also do not believe Senzo was killed by robbers. Music producer Chicco Twala made headlines earlier last year when a Twitter user claimed his son Longwe – who was dating Kelly’s sister Zandi at the time – used his gun to shoot the footballer after an altercation.

Chicco denied his gun was used, adding that he does not believe his son pulled the trigger.

But Chicco says the six people who were in the house at the time of the shooting know what really happened.

“Someone has pulled a trigger. Someone killed Senzo on that night. These six people knew who did it. Why are they quiet? I am not buying the story about the robbery, personally. Someone knows who killed Senzo, including my son, they must be arrested if needs be,” he told Power FM in an interview.
