JOHANNESBURG - ANC Secretary General Fikile Mbalula says rapper AKA was assassinated.
AKA -- whose real name is Kiernan Forbes -- and his former manager Tebello 'Tibz' Motsoane were gunned down in Durban on Friday night.
Mbalula says he is confident the police will crack the case, but is urging anyone with information on the murder to come forward.
"We can't make speculations, but we know, it was a hit, AKA was assassinated," he said.
"We believe in the capacity of the police to dig deep and get the killers and also why it happened."
Mbalula has called anyone with information to come forward.
