According to EWN, Forbes spoke to the media at the Durban Magistrates Court where five suspects appeared for the murders of rapper AKA and his celebrity chef friend Tebello "Tibz" Motsoane.

Forbes said it is tiring for him because he lives in Cape Town and has to wake up early to travel to Durban for the court case. However, the grieving father noted that it may be taking a toll on him, but it's still worth it.

He said:

"It is tiring. I live in Cape Town, so I have to get up early to be here. You have to travel so it is hard work but for me it’s worth it."

AKA and Tibz murder case postponed

Meanwhile, some of the accused suspects pleaded not guilty and requested to be released on bail.

Some of the suspects have been arrested in other unrelated cases and remanded in custody.

Fans rubbishes Police report on late singer

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that fans had dismissed the police periodic report on the progress made so far in the investigation into the brutal assassination of the late singer AKA.

Fans argued that making the names of suspects public would do more harm than good in the pursuit of justice, as the marked identities have now been given time and space to cover whatever tracks remain of the occurrence.
