The police have reportedly arrested three people in connection with the death of the late rapper Kiernan Forbes, who was popularly known by his stage name AKA.
According to a source involved in the investigation of the rapper’s murder, the people suspected of committing the crime have been apprehended in Cape Town and are currently under police custody, as per IOL’s report.
The suspects are expected to be transported to Durban.
When approached for comment, Colonel André Traut, the spokesperson for Western Cape police, declined to provide a statement and referred all inquiries regarding the arrests to the KwaZulu-Natal police.
“It is a KZN case, should we get any information, it will be sent to them. You should contact them for information,” he said.
KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Colonel Robert Netshiunda also refrained from confirming whether the arrests had been made or not.
“We have not received any update on the AKA case,” he said.
