DRUM Magazine reported that some of Kelly Khumalo’s friends have received “strange” messages allegedly from the singer, requesting R3100 bribe money to pay the police. Her phone was stolen during the robbery in which her boyfriend Senzo Meyiwa was killed.
Her close friends, Melinda Ferguson, Arthur Mafokate and singer Wanda Baloyi were among those targeted.
One of the messages reads: “Plz call Detective Sello on 076 494 3030 bribe him please.”
Unfortunately Wanda Baloyi found out about the scam too late. “I kept getting messages asking that I help,” says Wanda who eventually depositing the money. “She is already going through a lot, I was only trying to help a friend,” says the singer.
