It has been barely two weeks since the murder of rapper Kiernan Forbes and celebrity chef Tebello. However, there have been recent updates on their murder case which has been brought to light.
Kiernan Forbes, popularly known as AKA, was a popular South African rapper. However, it took the internet by surprise when he and his longtime friend were allegedly shot and murdered. The murder took place on February 10th at a popular restaurant in Durban. They were buried privately and out of the public’s eye.
According to Newzroom Afrika, the police minister, Bheki Cele stated there has some leads they are following and that there has been significant progress in this murder case. However, he mentioned that any update will be sent to the deceased’s family and not the media.
The minister’s update did little to ease the mind of the people. According to some, Bheki cannot be trusted as he has failed at solving high-profile crimes multiple times. They believe that the police is rather corrupt and would not solve this murder case.
Additionally, there has been speculations that the minister had been acquainted with AKA’s fiancee, Anele Tembe. Sources show that the fiancée allegedly jumped to her death and the rapper is to blame for it. This has been shown as the reason for the delayed investigation for the rapper’s murder case. Is there some truth to this or is this another rumour?
The fact notwithstanding that the people have lost faith in the police force. They thus believe that AKA’s murder case will be another cold case in the country. Will the police disappoint the people yet again?
