A businessman who is a member of a powerful South African family has been linked to the murder of popular rapper AKA.


A statement presented to court by the investigating officer said, a day after AKA’s murder, a company owned by businessman Sydney Mfundo Gcaba allegedly sent over 800,000 rand to the bank account of one of the suspects currently on trial over the rapper’s killing.


The prosecutor, citing phone records, also said that the suspect who received the money, Mziwethemba Harvey Gwabeni, allegedly made a call to Gcaba before the transaction was completed, but Gwabeni said in an affidavit that he received the funds as payment for consultation services he provided to the company.


AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes, and his close friend, Tibz Motsoane, were gunned down outside a restaurant in Durban on 10 February last year.
