JUST IN: KwaZulu-Natal police speak on rapper AKA’s killers’ arrest reports


KwaZulu-Natal police say there is no update as yet in the investigation into the murder of rapper Kiernan “AKA” Forbes.

KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Col Robert Netshiunda was responding to a report that three suspects were arrested for the rapper’s death on Sunday.

AKA was gunned down outside a popular restaurant on Durban’s Florida Road last month. The shooting also resulted in the death of his friend, celebrity chef Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane.

Police minister Bheki Cele told a ministerial imbizo in mid-March that police were making significant progress. He said an update received from his KwaZulu-Natal team advised data from cellphones collected was being used to “patch and knit things together”.

His spokesperson Lirandzu Themba told TimesLIVE on Monday: “Any comment of breakthrough on the case will be done by KZN SAPS.”
