Aka death: ANC suspect foul play
South Africa’s ruling party, the ANC has made a sensational claim that musician AKA was assassinated.
The party’s Secretary General Fikile Mbalula challenged the police to account for the killers.
AKA, whose real name is Kiernan Forbes, was shot dead at a popular restaurant in Durban’s Florida Road last Friday night. The fatal shooting also resulted in the death of his lifelong friend, wine owner, and book author Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane.
“We can’t make speculations, but we know it was a hit, AKA was assassinated.
“We believe in the capacity of the police to dig deep and get the killers and also why it happened,” he said.
Meanwhile, fans and industry peers held a prayer on Sunday evening in Durban for AKA and Tibz.
Investigations into the death of slain South African rapper Kiernan “AKA” Forbes continue as details about his death come to light.
