Kelly Khumalo is alleged to have been implicated in the murder of Senzo Meyiwa.
This follows after forensic officer Thabo Mosia took the stand at the high court in Pretoria on Wednesday as the trial against the five men accused of killing Senzo continues.
The lawyer representing four of the five accused, advocate Malesela Teffo, said an “eye-witness” would testify that Kelly allegedly shot Senzo “by mistake”.
” Eyewitness will testify Senzo Robert Meyiwa was allegedly shot by Nonhlanhla Kelly Khumalo by mistake, ” he said.
The singer and reality TV star was among five people in a Vosloorus home during an alleged house robbery when the soccer was gunned down in 2014.
The Meyiwa family have been crying for justice since the murder.
In a recent interview on 702, Kelly said she was not bothered by tongues wagging on social media and suggesting she could be linked to the soccer star’s death.
“The noise is external [and] has absolutely nothing to do with me. When I’m needed, and when the time is right, the world will hear my voice. They will not hear my voice when they feel they should,” she said.
Kelly’s lawyer Magdalene Moonsamy was excused from court proceedings in April and told eNCA she would continue making formal submissions regarding the outcome and other observations about the trial because her client remains a victim due to the state being uncertain whether she is a witness.
“My client has been co-operating and has been compliant with all the requests made by the state and police. She’s waiting for her day to find closure as well. I don’t see how they can be prejudiced against a victim,” she said.
