AKA and Tibz murder suspects denied bail

Five men accused of killing rapper Kiernan “AKA” Forbes and his friend Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane were denied bail by the Durban Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.

Judge Vincent Hlatshwayo made the ruling, keeping the suspects in custody at Westville Prison.

The accused are Lindokuhle Thabani Mkhwanazi, Lindani Ndimande, Siyanda Eddie Myeza, Mziwethemba Harvey Gwabeni, and Lindokuhle Ndimande.

They were arrested in connection with the deaths of Forbes and Motsoane, who were shot outside the now-closed Durban restaurant, Wish, on February 10, 2023.

The suspects face several charges, including conspiracy to commit murder, murder, five counts of attempted murder, unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition, and money laundering. They also have other pending legal matters.
