‘I will live my life’: Lynn Forbes speaks on arrest of AKA killers

Businesswoman Lynn Forbes has been quiet since the arrest of seven men who are linked to the murders of her son Kiernan “AKA” Forbes and friend Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane, who were gunned down outside of a restaurant on Florida Road in Durban last year.


AKA’s mom, Lynn said with the progress being made in the case; she will continue to live her life the way her son would want.

“I know that the best way for me to honour you is to live my life. That is what you would want. I’m trying,” Lynn wrote on a social media post. She has also urged her son’s fans to keep sending messages of hope to her family.

“Your messages are always welcome. They don’t traumatise me. I cherish every message, even the ones I never get to see. I appreciate your love and support; it gives me strength when I need it most.” Lynn told ZiMoja that all she wishes to do is to allow the law to take its course.

“That is all we can do right now while we mourn. Every day is different for us, some days hurt more than others.”

However, AKA’s father, Tony Forbes believes his son’s death was not a coincidence and was thoughtfully planned and executed by someone well-connected and in a position of power.

“It was not random. It took time, resources, planning and he was targeted,” Tony said. “I believe this was done by people with money and power. They made sure it happened by having two shooters.”


The men allegedly responsible for the rapper’s death were arrested since April last year with two caught hiding in Eswatini two weeks ago.

Reports state that the accused received R800 000 for the hit which the police say was meant for AKA and not Tibz. Lindokuhle Thabani Mkhwanazi (30), Lindani Zenzele Ndimande (35), Siyanda Eddie Myeza (21), Mziwethemba Harvey Gwabeni (36) and Lindokuhle Lindo Ndimande (29), appeared before the Durban Magistrates Court last week on charges of conspiracy to commit murder, two counts of murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, and five counts of attempted murder.

They will be back in court this Thursday. The two brothers Siyabonga Ndimande and Malusi Ndimande who are behind bars in Eswatini are due to appear in court in Manzini tomorrow.
