A Tweep by the handle @thisiscolbert shared a video of Nota Baloyi’s Instagram live which set tongues wagging on Twitter.

“Killing people in blood sacrifices, well this is what it’s been since the 26 October in 2014 – that faithful Sunday night,” he said. 

“This thing has been weighing heavily on my heart for years. I get to see Kelly Khumalo roaming free, knowing what I know. Knowing that this woman is behind the death of this man,” he continued.
