Speaking through her attorney, Former Economic Freedom Fighters Treasurer General Magdalene Moonsamy, in a statement released on Saturday evening, Khumalo said she was not charged or implicated, and let alone a suspect in the Meyiwa case.
Khumalo’s statement follows the recent developments in the six year old murder case indicating that five suspects were arrested by the police in connection with the murder of Meyiwa, which is also now believed to have been a hit and not a robbery gone wrong as the initial investigations had pointed.
The police, according to the leaked NPA documents managed to secure confessions from two of the arrested suspects.
It is believed that Khumalo was implicated by one of the confessed suspects who allegedly indicated that he had been in contact with her prior to the shooting of the former Bafana Bafana Captain at Khumalo’s family home in Voslorus in 2014.
“Our client notes the recent developments of which at this sad time allowed her the opportunity to remain private in the best interest of herself and children especially that of the daughter she has with Mr Meyiwa,” said Moonsamy in the statement.
“We wish to place it on record that our client is not implicated nor charged in this matter and is therefore not a suspect,” she said responding to the NPA’s leaked document pointed that Khumalo was also on the police radar.
