Five of the seven men accused of being involved in the murder of South African rapper Kiernan Forbes, popularly known as AKA, and his close friend, celebrity chef and entrepreneur Tebello “Tibz” Motshoane, have made an initial court appearance.


The proceedings, which were broadcast live on several South African TV channels, have now been postponed until next week.


The five accused did not make any comment in court but their lawyers said they would apply for bail, which the state intends to oppose.


Speaking to newsmen, AKA’s father, Forbes said he had prepared himself to face his son’s alleged murderers.


AKA and Motshoane were gunned down outside a restaurant in the coastal city of Durban a year ago, an incident that shocked South Africa, which has one of the highest crime rates in the world.
