I’m not buying the robbery story – Chicco Twala

Legendary music producer, Sello Chicco Twala

Music producer Sello Chicco Twala has now revealed that he does not believe the murder of Bafana Bafana captain and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiza was a botched robbery.

According to Daily Sun, Twala has called on all the six people who were present when the alleged robbery took place to come clean.

Speaking to Power FM, Chicco said “The six people should just tell the truth. Someone pulled the trigger. Someone killed Senzo on that night and these people know, why are they quiet?

“I am not buying the story about the robbery, personally. Someone knows who killed Senzo, including my son. They must all be arrested if needs be. They must leave me out of this nonsense”.

The six people he is referring to include his son Longwe Twala and his two friends, Kelly Khumalo, her mother and sister Zandi Khumalo.

This is after allegations that Chicco’s gun was used in the murder as it was missing during the time of the incident.

Rumors on social media suggest Longwe used his father’s gun to kill Senzo Meyiwa.

Chicco was not happy about the way he is being portrayed on social media.

“Is it a crime for me to be called and rushed to hospital? South Africans are blaming me, there’s so much insults about me,” he said.

He is determined to clear his name and he promise to see to it that this case is solved quickly.

“I am going to push Fikile Mbalula to make arrests. I am going to make lots of noise because I want my name cleared. If it’s my son, Mbalula must arrest and charge him and put him in jail” he said in closure.

Longwe Twala talks about the night Senzo Meyiwa was killed

Longwe Twala on Senzo Meyiwa’s death

Chicco Twala’s son, Longwe Twala has broken his silence on the accusation by Senzo Meyiwa’s father, Sam Meyiwa. Sam said on Metro FM’s The Drive’s show that Longwe was the man behind the trigger that killed former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper.

In an interview with the drive team on Metro FM, Longwe said he was actually the ‘coward’ on the day because he ran out of the house when the robbers came inside Kelly Khumalo’s house.

Twala said the police had interrogated him already and also took his phone to check if he is linked to Senzo’s murder.

“I’m actually saddened that my own people can do this to me, I mean it was a robbery gone wrong. I was even the coward of the day ’cause I actually ran out as those gunmen actually came in and requested phones and money from us. I was actually the first to stand up to try and protect everyone, not realizing that the other guy also had a gun and pointed the gun at me and I actually ran out the door after he pointed the gun in self-defense.
