Durban businessman identified as the person who paid for AKA, Tibz murders

JOHANNESBURG – Durban businessman Mziwethemba Gwabeni will on Tuesday morning apply for bail in the murder case of Kiernan “AKA” Forbes and Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane.

Gwabeni has been pointed out as the paymaster in the case, with the State alleging he received more than R800,000 as payment for the murder before sharing the cash with his co-accused.
