JOHANNESBURG - Singer Kelly Khumalo says she doesn't want to talk about the murder of her boyfriend and the father of her youngest child, Senzo Meyiwa, because that is her way of coping with the pain.

The Bafana Bafana captain was shot dead by armed robbers in Vosloorus last month while visiting Khumalo.

She says all she wants is to move on with her life.

"I'm the one that has to pay my bills, I am the one that has to pick up the pieces and carry on with my life and no one will be there for me as far as that is concerned."

The police's only suspect in Meyiwa's murder case, Zamokuhle Mbatha, was released earlier this month, due to a lack of evidence.

Officers have admitted to Eyewitness New s all their leads have dried up and they're now relying on information from the public.
