Following the recent shocking discoveries in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria that portray her as the mastermind behind the murder of her late partner and baby daddy Senzo Meyiwa in October 2014, Kelly Khumalo has lost money as a result of not being able to get bookings.

It is said that her singing career is hanging by the balance, as gigs are far and few between. Promoters are apparently wary of booking the singer, because of fears of reputational damage after confession statements from accused number one Muzi Sibiya and two Bongani Ntanzi in the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial implicated Kelly as the mastermind.

Judge Ratha Mokgoathleng ruled in a trial-within-a-trial that the Ntanzi and Sibiya’s confession statements were admissable. In the confession statements read in court last month by state witnesses, Lieutenant Colonel Moholo Solomon Raphadu and Colonel Mhlanganyelwa Mbotho, the two accused said they were briefed that the person who initiated the hit was Kelly, whom they allege paid R100 000 for the murder.

“After the startling revelations were made, they shrunk. Promoters don’t want to touch her because obviously they know what’s going on with the court case. Some of her bookings have been cancelled, because of this drama,” revealed a source.

“I was booked at the same event with her, but I was shocked to find that she wouldn’t be performing anymore, because she was cancelled at the eleventh hour,” an artist, who wished to remain anonymous told ZiMoja.

Considering that Senzo has a sizable fan base, they don’t want to upset anyone by putting Kelly Khumalo in danger before she is proven to be innocent.Kelly, who is assigned to Universal Music, doesn’t seem to be concerned about what happened in court, but it seems like she is concerned about what this implies for her career and freedom.

“She is obviously stressed, but doesn’t want to show it, because she knows people want to see her down, because they’ve been throwing accusations against her for many years. She’s always painted herself as a victim in throughout this debacle, but things have changed,” another source says.

Meanwhile, things are becoming more interesting in the case, as the star could be forced to take the stand to tell her side of the story. This as the defence of one of the accused has requested to subpoena the singer so she can answer questions about her alleged involvement in the case.

An investigator in the murder case Sergeant Batho Mogola told the court this week during cross-examination by advocate Charles Mnisi, who is representing accused number 3 Mthobisi Mncube that that she does not know why the alleged mastermind behind the killing, who is known to the police, has not been arrested or charged.

Mogola testified that all of the accused were connected to an alleged mastermind through a cellphone investigation, based on the investigation and her briefings with Brigadier Bongani Gininda, the primary investigator.
