Investigation Surrounding AKA’s Murder: Gcaba Family Denies Involvement

South Africa’s influential Gcaba family has denied any involvement in the murder of rapper AKA.

Prosecutors informed the court last Wednesday that the Gcaba family is suspected of involvement in the rapper’s murder trial.

A statement by the investigating officer claimed that one of Mr. Gcaba’s companies transferred over 800,000 rand to the bank account of Mziwethemba Harvey Gwabeni, a murder suspect.

The prosecutors asserted that Harvey Gwabeni received the money a day after the murder. Gwabeni claimed in an affidavit that the funds were from business with the Gcaba family.

However, prosecutors argued there was insufficient evidence of their involvement in any business dealings. The Gcaba family, in a statement issued on Sunday, March 31, explained that the payment was part of several transactions between Mr. Gcaba and Mr. Gwabeni, solely for business purposes.

“These numerous transactions over a long period of time can be verified through bank records and were neither unique nor isolated,” the family said.

They expressed concern over authorities not seeking Mr. Gcaba’s side but affirmed his readiness to clear his name.
