Suspects Arrested In Eswatini Reportedly Unconnection To AKA’s Murder

The hunt for the killers of South African rapper AKA continues, but it appears like the police are not making as much progress as the public desires. Two suspects arrested in Eswatini over the killing of AKA are said to have no links to the musician’s death. 

On Friday, February 23, suspected hitmen were arrested in the kingdom for alleged links to AKA’s killing. The suspects, aged 28 and 29. were not named. But they are said to be brothers who have committed other crimes including the murder of three taxi owners. 

The brothers reportedly fled after committing the crimes. However, reacting to the claim, the South African Police Service (SAPS) dismissed the links of those suspects to AKA’s murder. According to the SAPS, investigations into AKA’s murder are at a sensitive stage and it would not want to jeopardise the investigation through careless utterances in the media. 

AKA was murdered alongside his former manager Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane on February 10 last year. He had just stepped out of Wish Restaurant on Florida Road in Durban when he was shot a point-blank range. This ended a brilliant rap career spanning over a decade. It remains to be seen if the police will unearth his killers.
