South African sisters Kelly Khumalo and Zandie Khumalo have settled their differences.
In her recent interview with Kaya FM, Kelly opened up about her relationship with Zandie, saying they were now on good terms.
Kelly told Kaya FM’s Sol Phenduka and Dineo Ranaka in the interview monitored by www.africanentertainment.com that she and her sister have reconciled.
She says they are on speaking terms again after a year of confusion.
According to Kelly, the breakup actually helped rediscover themselves.
She says: “We are good. We are very good actually. I think we needed that bit of a break. You know, when you are so close to another to a point where you lose self-identity, which is a dangerous thing for an individual … so I now feel like we needed that. She had to find her outside me, and I had to find me outside her.”
She says she was tired of fighting with her sister Zandie, saying: “I’m at a point where I’m tired of being mad. It doesn’t serve me anymore and I think we should find an amicable way of dealing with each other. The biggest issue is I felt my mother wasn’t doing her part”.
Recalled that Kelly and Zandie’s fight began after Zandie’s husband Mhlo Gumede, used Kelly’s name for an event she was not involved in. Reports claimed that Mhlo took a payment of R17,000 from organisers because they saw Kelly and Vusi Nova’s name, but Kelly knew nothing about this. Distancing herself from the scandal, Kelly released a statement and said Mhlo is not her booking manager.”
At the time, Kelly announced that: “With all due respect, Mhlo Gumede is my sister’s husband And manager NOT my bookings manager nor part of my team, never was and never will be, so what ever dealings you may have with him Do NOT involve me.”
Following Kelly’s disclaimer, Zandie took to Instagram to retaliate, saying “If I was divorcing my husband maybe it would have been a little bit easier and lighter, but I am separating from a person I have known for all my life and have shared laughs, pain, excitement, and disappointment with all my life, my sister.”
