Potentially upcoming arrests include Kelly Khumalo and Longwe Twala, according to the state prosecutor.


The meeting was convened by Judge Tshifhiwa Maumela and State Prosecutor George Baloyi to discuss the current status of the second docket.

According to the National Prosecuting Authorities’ directive to the court, it must now make a decision on the second docket.

State Prosecutor George Baloyi confirmed in court today that the second docket, which is about people who were in the room when Senzo Meyiwa was killed, has been transferred from Johannesburg to Pretoria.

The Director of Public Prosecutions in Pretoria has stopped handling both cases as of late, according to Baloyi’s submission to the court.

Judge Maumela and Advocate Baloyi both gave emphatic answers when asked if there would be any more cases on that docket. “Yes, the DPP will make a judgment” (375).

Kelly Khumalo, Longwe Thwala, and the other parties involved will be detained if the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) permits the second docket to move forward.

The following justifies the absence from court of the eyewitness who was present at the scene of Senzo Meyiwa’s shooting.

Senzo Meyiwa’s trial was supposed to be delayed today, but due to unforeseen events, it was forced to be postponed. It will now take place on Tuesday, September 13, 2022.

The state claims to have a witness who was present in the residence when Senzo was shot, and they have given the name of this witness. The witness is said to be a local resident.

The neighbor was unable to attend the court proceeding because their flight was due to arrive in the afternoon. The state tried its best to get the witness a flight earlier, but they were unsuccessful, the prosecutor told the court.

The first time it was made public that the state had obtained a witness’s testimony who was physically present in the home, shockwaves were sent through South Africa’s populace. It also raised a great deal of suspicion, including queries about whether or not the crime scene had been altered and whether or not a person who had been at the house at the time of the crime had actually been there.

On the following day, the court case will resume.
