Kelly Khumalo gets arrested, starts tweeting in tongues

Celebrities have posted a number of insane things on Twitter over the years but Kelly Khumalo took the prize for ‘weirdest tweet ever’ last night.

According to Sapa news, Khumalo and her sister handed themselves in at the Hillbrow police station for allegedly assaulting the wife of Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa but that isn’t the only reason why the twitter users were shocked by the singer last night.

Following the news of her arrest, Khumalo took to twitter with a number of posts that left fans wondering if her account had been hacked.

“God will do what he said he will stand by his word, no weapon formed against me shall prosper, it won't work!,” she first tweeted.

She followed that tweet up with: “Rabakashanda rabosiya ekhelemende. Rebesiya!” then ended it off with a baptism of fire: “ Fire fire fire fire fire fire fire fire,” she wrote.

The Christian apologetics & Research ministry describes speaking in tongues as “a phenomena where a person speaks in a language that is unknown to him. This language is either the language of angels or other earthly languages.”

So I guess it’s safe to say Khumalo was overcome by the spirit when she posted those tweets.

Of course twitter users couldn’t help but poke fun at her bizzare posts.

“Kelly just clocked twitter. There's nothing left for her to do here now. She killed the boss & rescued the princess,” @SizweDhlomo wrote.

“As Deputy Your Holiness to @Kelly_Khumalo, I'm the next in line to assume leadership of the Twitter Prayer Circle while she's in custody,” @ShottaZee posted.

The City Press Online reported that Khumalo allegedly found Meyiwa chatting to his wife, Mandisa, on Empire Road near the M1.

She allegedly stopped her car and assaulted Mandisa with open hands, without provocation. Khumalo's younger sister, who was sitting in the car joined in.
