Justice Minister Okays Ndimande Brothers Extradition From Eswatini As AKA Murder Trial Continues

Things are shaping up in the murder trial of the slain South African rapper Kiernan “AKA” Forbes, with South African Justice Minister Ronald Lamola having finally fulfilled the requirements to have two suspects, the brothers Siyabonga Gezani Ndimande and Malusi Dave Ndimande, extradited to South Africa from Eswatini.

The brothers had reportedly fled to Eswatini months before the hit and remained there up to the time of the rapper’s assassination. They were arrested recently but their extradition was delayed for lack of filing of necessary documents.

With that hurdle currently crossed, the brothers should be on their way to South Africa soon. They have made a couple of requests, though, including that their lawyers be present throughout.

AKA was shot dead on February 10 last year, just outside Wish Restaurant on Florida Road in Durban, minutes after stepping out with his friends, including former manager Tibz, who was also killed with him.

His assassination sent shockwaves across South Africa, with many of his compatriots calling on the authorities to fish out those behind the murder.

Well, it appears like the authorities are about to do that after all. Nothing is certain despite the arrests that have been made so far, including the secured extradition orders for the Ndimande brothers
