Zandile Khumalo-Gumede Slams Netizens Calling For Her To Be Cancelled

The singer and TV personality, Zandile Khumalo-Gumede, has broken her silence after her sister Kelly Khumalo was cancelled from the Maseru Jazz Festival amid the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial. The Bafana Bafana goalkeeper was shot dead in 2014 at Kelly’s mother’s house in Vosloorus. The trial of the five suspects is currently taking place at the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.

Kelly Khumalo has not commented on her alleged cancellation. The singer has been cancelled from two gigs this month. She was cancelled from the all-star lineup of ‘A Tribute To Women’ festival and The Maseru Jazz Festival, slated for 24 September 2023. According to both event organisers, the decision to cancel Kelly Khumalo was based on complaints from unhappy audiences who were following the shocking testimonies during the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial.
