Six suspects linked to murder of South African rapper AKA arrested

By Rédaction Africanews

SOUTH AFRICA – South African police have arrested six suspects over the murder of one of the country’s hottest rap artists, Kiernan Forbes, known as AKA.

According to reports, the 35-year-old musician was gunned down on February 10 last year while walking in the company of a friend outside a popular Durban restaurant hours before he was to perform at a nearby club.

“It was clear that AKA was monitored from the airport and Tibz was not the intended target in the murder on Florida Road in Durban,” Lt Gen Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi, the KwaZulu-Natal provincial police commissioner, said in a press briefing on Tuesday night.

“We know they were paid for this,” Lt Gen Mkwananzi added.

He said that the six accused men played different roles in the plot to kill AKA.

The suspects who are behind bars include two gunmen who fired several rounds at the victims, two spotters who followed AKA from Durban’s airport, someone who sourced the firearms which were used in the ambush, as well as the mastermind.

He said the oldest suspect was 36 and that others could be added to the list.
