Ramaphosa Thanks Bheki Cele For Finally Arresting 25 People Involved In AKA’s Murder

Headline: Breakthrough in AKA Murder Case as Police Uncover Vehicles and Make Significant Progress

Johannesburg, Date – Today marks a significant development in the investigation into the shooting of Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, widely known as AKA, as Minister of Police Bheki Cele announces the recovery of vehicles used by the assailants.

In a comprehensive briefing following the ANC national executive committee meeting over the weekend, Minister Cele shared pivotal updates on the high-profile murder case that has gripped the nation’s attention. Addressing the media at the Birchwood Hotel and Conference Centre in Boksburg, Cele revealed, “We have found the cars that were used by the suspects on the night of AKA’s shooting.”

The breakthrough comes as a ray of hope for AKA’s fans, popularly known as the “Megacy,” who have been anxiously awaiting justice. The vehicles’ discovery raises expectations that investigators are closing in on the perpetrators responsible for the tragic incident.

Minister Cele went on to confirm that not only have the vehicles been located, but progress has been made in identifying the individuals involved. “The gun and the people implicated in the shooting have also been located,” he assured, signaling a significant leap forward in the pursuit of justice for AKA.

The revelation follows an earlier report by Sunday World in September, indicating that the police had identified the murder weapon, adding a layer of complexity to an already intricate investigation.

Speaking on the intricacies of the case, KwaZulu-Natal police commissioner Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi emphasized the challenges associated with a murder that occurred in a public space. Mkhwanazi stated that the investigation involved numerous individuals, and the night of the shooting witnessed a flurry of phone calls.

AKA and his friend Tibz were subjected to a hail of bullets outside the Wish restaurant on Florida Road in Durban early in February. Mkhwanazi highlighted that the investigation is far from over, with extensive footage still awaiting analysis and over 25 cellphones yet to be examined.

Beyond the AKA case, Minister Cele provided insights into other police interventions, including efforts to combat illegal mining across the country. He revealed that special tactical response teams have been deployed to specific areas, yielding positive results in curbing illegal mining activities.

Touching on national security, Cele’s briefing included information from Polly Boshielo, chair of the NEC sub-committee on peace and stability. Boshielo announced plans to integrate the South African National Defence Force into the security framework of the newly launched Border Management Agency. The collaboration aims to enhance efficiency and effectiveness in securing the country’s borders.

“As the sub-committee, we are working in a very coordinated fashion with all departments in the security cluster to combat crime and build stability in our country,” Boshielo affirmed, highlighting a united front in the ongoing battle against criminal activities.

As the investigation into AKA’s shooting progresses, the public remains eager for further developments and, ultimately, justice to be served for one of South Africa’s beloved musicians.
