Kelly Khumalo Speaks On Relationship With Sister Zandie As Rumours They Were In A Love Triangle With Senzo Meyiwa Go Into Overdrive
Kelly Khumalo has spoken about the state of her relationship with her sister Zandie Gumede (née Khumalo).
This comes after a shocking claim that she and her sister Zandie were both intimate with the late footballer Senzo Meyiwa. There were audible gasps in the North Gauteng High Court last Thursday when Advocate Tshepo Timothy Thobane who represents four of the men accused of killing Meyiwa claimed the late goalkeeper was sleeping with both Kelly and Zandie Khumalo.
Kelly Khumalo brought in her sister Zandie to move in with her and her lover. Senzo Meyiwa succumbed to his carnal desires and allegedly asked Zandie out. Kelly Khumalo’s sister allegedly agreed to the illicit affair. Advocate Thobane said:
A witness will testify that Kelly had brought Zandie to live with them, to guard Senzo while she was doing her music activities. I put it to you, that the same witness will come and testify that Senzo was complaining about the way Kelly was doing things, and having someone to guard him. That witness will testify that at the end, Senzo ended up having a sexual relationship with Zandie as well, with Kelly being away for a long time.
Talking to Sol Phenduka and Dineo Ranaka as a guest on Kaya 959, Kelly Khumalo confirmed that she and Zandie Gumede had buried the hatchet.
Kelly Khumalo said in retrospect, the split was a blessing in disguise. She said:
We are good. We are very good actually. I think we needed that bit of a break. You know, when you are so close to another to a point where you lose self-identity, which is a dangerous thing for an individual … so I now feel like we needed that. It had to happen. She had to find her outside me, and I had to find me outside her and now as we come together we both have different worlds now that we keep to us and when we come together it becomes one big world.
The Khumalo sisters had been feuding for years. Their feud became public after Kelly released a statement distancing herself from a scam Zandie’s husband Mhlo Gumede was allegedly involved in.
Zandie hit back and announced a “divorce” from her sister, in a lengthy Instagram post.
