AKA Murder Trial: Accused Denies R800k Was For A Hit Job

The investigation to expose the killers of South African rapper Kiernan “AKA” Forbes continues with new revelations popping up every other day. In a new twist to the whole drama, a suspect has denied the R800k received around the time of the rapper’s murder was for the hit job.

In case you missed it or have not been following all along, it was earlier claimed that one of the suspects was paid the sum of R800k for the job just hours before the hit.

The claim reverberated across South Africa back then, with peeps pointing out that if that was the case it should be easy to follow the money and fish out the perpetrators. The said sum was reportedly paid through FNB.

Well, Mziwethemba Harvey Gwabeni, accused number four in the murder case, is adamant that the R800k that was paid into his FNB account was not for the assassination of AKA but for “consulting services.”

Among others, the businessman is facing charges of unlawful possession of ammunition, firearm, and two counts of murder.

Whether he can prove that the R800k was for “consulting services” is left to time. AKA was shot dead at point-blank range alongside his former manager on February 10 last year.
