The alleged weapon responsible for the tragic demise of South African rapper Kiernan “AKA” Forbes and Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane has been discovered, shedding light on the perplexing case.

A confidential source, intimately acquainted with the investigation but lacking the authority to disclose details to the media, informed IOL that the firearm was unearthed over the weekend in uMlazi, situated south of Durban.


Meticulous analysis conducted by ballistics experts has unequivocally established that the 9mm pistol in question is indisputably linked to the fateful shooting incident that abruptly claimed the lives of these two individuals.

Reports indicate that a man in his twenties has been apprehended in connection with the case, adding a glimmer of hope to an otherwise dark and enigmatic narrative.

However, an alternative insider perspective asserts that the firearm under scrutiny was actually procured for hire, raising perplexing questions regarding the motive and the unseen forces at play.

On that ill-fated day, Forbes met his untimely demise while departing from Wish Restaurant, his life extinguished in an audacious act of aggression as an assailant fearlessly approached him, swiftly discharging a single fatal round that robbed him of his future.

Motsoane, an esteemed celebrity chef and visionary entrepreneur, also fell victim to this heartrending tragedy, succumbing to the same malevolent force that snuffed out Forbes’ existence.

In response to inquiries seeking official statements, KZN police spokesperson Colonel Robert Netshiunda earnestly implored the media to afford the diligent SAPS investigators the necessary time and space to carry out their arduous duties free from the burden of undue external influence.

Previous developments in March witnessed the apprehension of four individuals, who were initially believed to be connected to the abhorrent slayings. However, they were ultimately released, leaving the case shrouded in further ambiguity.

Curiously, one of the detained men faced charges related to a hijacking incident, casting an eerie shadow of suspicion on the intricate web of events surrounding this tragedy.


Speaking on behalf of the accused, Advocate Annelene van den Heever ardently contended that the arrests were executed in a manner marred by irregularity and unlawfulness, vehemently asserting that her clients were unjustifiably targeted by law enforcement.

She lamented, “The authorities unabashedly propagated the notion that my clients were intertwined with the AKA investigation, callously neglecting to offer any substantive comment or clarification at the time.”

Unveiling her disapproval of the situation, van den Heever expressed her professional opinion, unequivocally branding the arrests as flagrantly in contravention of established legal norms, leaving no room for doubt regarding the irregularities and unlawfulness that marred the actions of the authorities involved.
