Rapper, AKA

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

Last Wednesday, prosecutors in the rapper’s murder trial told court that the Gcaba family is suspected to have had a hand in the murder of the rapper.

A statement presented to court by the investigating officer alleged that one of Mr Gcaba’s companies transferred over 800,000 rand ($42,000; £33,000) to the bank account of Mziwethemba Harvey Gwabeni, one of the suspects being tried for the rapper’s murder.

The prosecutor’s claimed that the suspect, Harvey Gwabeni received the money a day after the murder occurred.

Gwabeni is said to have claimed in an affidavit that the funds received were as a result of some business with the Gcaba family.

However, prosecutor’s say there was no enough evidence to suggest that both were involved in any business operations.

But 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, which were “purely 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’s statement said.

The family added that it was “concerned” that authorities have not asked Mr Gcaba to share his side of the story, but that he was ready to clear his name.
