KwaZulu-Natal Police Commissioner Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi has offered a new update on the February 10 shooting of rapper AKA.
According to SABC News, Mkhwanazi said police investigations into various murders in the province, including that of AKA, look promising. While a suspect is still yet to be named, Mkhwanazi encouraged ‘communities to come on board and share information.’
‘The investigation of Mr Forbes who was murdered last month; the majority of the work we did thus far it is because of the help from the community,” Mkhwanazi said.
‘The different cameras in that vicinity are not installed by the state, but it is those cameras that are helping us to analyse and identify some of those people who might have been involved and it helps us to make linkages.’
As we previously reported on Rap Aesthetics, AKA was gunned down alongside his childhood friend Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane last month outside Wish restaurant in Durban.
A celebration of life was held in his honor at at Sandton Convention Center on Friday (February 17) and was attended by his family, friends, colleagues and well-wishers. The rapper was laid to rest the following day in a private provincial funeral.
