Senzo Meyiwa Trial: Defence Lawyer Disputes Contact Between Kelly Khumalo and Accused

Advocate Thulani Mngomezulu denied that Kelly Khumalo and accused number three, Mthobisi Mncube, communicated.

Mngomezulu was cross-examining police data analyst Colonel Gideon Gouws during the Senzo Meyiwa trial at the North Gauteng High Court.

According to SABC News, an alleged confession by accused number two, Bongani Ntanzi, implicated Mncube and said that Meyiwa’s then-girlfriend, Khumalo, ordered a hit on the Bafana keeper.

Using two numbers reportedly belonging to Khumalo, Mngomezulu claimed there was no interaction between the two on the day Meyiwa was killed, October 26, 2014. The State said that previous evidence proved Khumalo had eight cell phones.

The trial was rescheduled for May 27, 2024, due to Gouws’ unavailability on May 24, 2024, as reported by Sunday World.
