JOHANNESBURG - Singer Kelly Khumalo has broken her silence following the murder of her boyfriend Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates Captain, Senzo Meyiwa.

Khumalo sent a message of condolence to the Meyiwa family in a statement released yesterday.

While expressing sorrow at the passing of the soccer star, the musician and her family have asked for privacy, saying the law should take its course.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper was shot at Khumalo's Vosloorus house on Sunday night.

No arrests have been made, but police say they're closing in on the suspects.

Identikits of two suspects were also made available to the public yesterday with police hoping this can provide a breakthrough in the case.

As the search continues, police have confirmed that one of the leads they're investigating is a phone call they received.

It's understood the call came from an anonymous caller claiming Meyiwa was killed while intervening in a fight between two people who were in the singer's house at the time.

A similar claim has been circulating on social media.

Acting provincial commissioner Tebello Mosikili heads the team probing Meyiwa's murder.

She says there's no evidence to back up these claims at this stage and police have been inundated with calls relating to murder.

"Every piece of information that is coming in we are looking at and taking very seriously. We're following up on all of them. We also need to remember that if a person makes certain allegations, what if this is what we looking for?"
