Musician Kelly Khumalo has spoken out for the first time on social media after she walked off the stage at an EFF rally amidst chants of "Senzo" and a banner calling for justice for the murder of late Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa. Kelly, who was in a relationship with the soccer star at the time of his death in October 2014, was performing at the Chatsworth stadium over the weekend when the audience started the chants.
According to Sowetan, the chants started at the back of the crowd and soon after Kelly signalled to the DJ that she would only perform one more song and after it, she walked off stage and left the venue. The star did not speak to anyone before heading into a white SUV and being whisked away, but took to social media on Monday to address the "bullies who find comfort in hurting people". She told her supporters that she was not afraid of those who were trying to intimidate her and dared them to touch her.
