Police seize cellphones, take statements in AKA murder investigation

By Khulile Thwala

Police in Durban, South Africa, have revealed that they are working on several leads in their investigation into multi-award-winning rapper Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes’ murder.

In a press briefing after the announcement of the Third Quarter Crime Statistics by the management of the South African Police Service on Friday, KwaZulu – Natal SAPS Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi said police have seized cellphones and taken statements.

“We have not arrested anyone yet. We have interviewed several people both in KZN as well as in Gauteng. We obtained statements and collected cell phones. We are busy downloading (from) some of those phones. We have collected quite a number of different CCTV cameras that we could find that will assist us. We are still putting our evidence together so we have a solid case going forward”, he said.

In a recent report by IOL News, it was stated that SAPS has also received ballistic reports and teams are still reviewing all videos and analysing footage. AKA was privately buried on Saturday at the Heroes Acre Cemetery with the SA flag draping his casket.

Gauteng Premier Panyaza Lesufi said this was the provincial government’s way of honouring the late musician.
