Like Mother Like Daughter: Shocking Revelation of Evidence Tampering by Kelly Khumalo’s Mother Unveiled in Senzo Meyiwa Murder Trial

The trial for Senzo Meyiwa’s murder took an unexpected turn as shocking evidence tampering was revealed during Wednesday’s proceedings. Sergeant Timothy Mathebula, a crucial prosecution witness, testified before the North Gauteng High Court in Tshwane, uncovering a perplexing twist in the case.

The Unveiled Revelation

Mathebula recounted the involvement of Ntombi “Makhumalo,” Kelly Khumalo’s mother, in tampering with crucial evidence related to the murder case. He described the initial response to the Vosloorus shooting, where the crime scene appeared more like a party scene, with scattered dishes and alcoholic beverages. This initial impression led them to believe that sealing off the premises wasn’t necessary.

However, during a subsequent visit accompanied by Makhumalo, who was fetched from Botshelong Hospital, the seriousness of the situation became apparent. With her guidance, the area was secured, and Mathebula revealed an important piece of evidence: a hat allegedly worn by one of the intruders.

Mathebula’s surprising admission was that he hadn’t documented or informed his colleagues about Makhumalo’s involvement with the evidence. This revelation raised questions about whether Makhumalo’s actions could be considered evidence tampering or contamination.

Questioning the Handling of Evidence

Advocate Zandile Mshololo, who represented one of the accused, questioned the legality of Makhumalo’s handling of the hat and its potential impact on the case. Mathebula agreed that her actions could indeed be considered tampering. However, he defended his decision not to report it, believing it was unnecessary at the time.

Mshololo’s surprise at Mathebula’s stance prompted further inquiry into his mental state during the crime scene investigation. Mathebula confidently affirmed that he was composed and sober throughout the inquiry, maintaining the credibility of his testimony.

Key Discoveries and Concluding Testimony

Mathebula continued by highlighting the initial inspection’s lack of bullet fragments or blood traces. However, upon learning of the shooting, a meticulous search uncovered a bullet fragment and a hole in the door. Mathebula’s testimony contradicted a previous witness’s claim that he had guided the police to the bullet fragment.

As the trial unfolds, the revelation of evidence tampering by Kelly Khumalo’s mother adds a new layer of complexity to the Senzo Meyiwa murder case. The court’s examination of the circumstances surrounding the tampering and its potential impact on the trial’s outcome will play a pivotal role in determining justice.
