“He Is Desperate For Attention” – Kelly Khumalo Attacks Advocate Teffi
Singer Kelly Khumalo, who has been in the heat during the trial of slain boyfriend, Senzo Meyiwa, has bashed Advocate Malesela Teffo, accusing him of being desperate for attention.
Kelly said this on her reality show, Life With Kelly, in reaction to Advocate Teffo. He is the defence advocate representing four suspects accused of murdering Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa in 2014.
Kelly Khumalo said:
This is very disturbing. Extremely disturbing. There are so many scenarios that South Africa has had. How desperate can one be to try and put me in jail for something that I did not do? My thing is that that Advocate is desperate for attention.
And he knows that every time he mentions my name, he trends. Every time he gets up, ‘my lord, Kelly Khumalo’. Argue. Make your submissions. We are here to find out the truth about what happened to my daughter’s father.
It went from Longwe and Zandie fighting into me … buying people. Me paying for people that I met at the mall. Now, she pulled the trigger.
In May, Advocate Malesela Teffo told the Pretoria High Court that he would call an eyewitness to testify that Kelly Khumalo was the one who mistakenly shot dead former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa.
He added that the witness would also attest that the gun used belonged to Longwe Twala, the son of top music producer Sello “Chicco” Twala.
The witness never came to court.
Meanwhile, Advocate Teffo was supposed to return to the trial of Senzo Meyiwa and represent the four suspects yesterday, but he did not show up. The defence lawyer has to apply to be readmitted as the defence attorney.
The matter will be postponed to September 5, and the accused have mandated instructing attorney, TT Thobane, to represent them
