Legendary musician and producer Chicco Twala has defended singer Kelly Khumalo against the ongoing rumours that she was involved in Senzo Meyiwa’s death and she knows who shot former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper.
Twala recently made headlines after a Twitter parody account (Man’s Not Barry Roux ) claimed to have information about the murder. The man behind the account accused Chicco and his son Longwe for Senzo’s death.
Yesterday SowetanLIVE reported that Chicco has launched a manhunt for the man behind the parody Twitter account who accused him and his son Longwe of being responsible for Meyiwa’s death.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Chicco the veteran said he understood the nation’s fascination with Senzo’s death, but said he believed that neither Kelly nor his son Longwe Twala were involved.
“Look, I wasn’t there the day Senzo was killed but I know that Kelly and Senzo were in love. Why would she kill him? They were lovers. They had a child together. Someone would have spoken out by now.”
According to the publication, Chicco said that if Kelly knew Senzo’s killer, she would have given that information to police.
“If it was my son, or anyone else she knew, she would have said something. I don’t think she would have kept quiet. You can’t keep quiet when someone you love dies in front of you and you know who killed him. It would have come out.”
“I don’t care what people say on social media. They can speculate all they want. I want the facts and if someone is claiming that I am involved, I want evidence. Otherwise it is defamation.”
