"AKA was murdered in Durban but the killers were arrested in Cape Town? How?"

@ISephara shared:

"What's interesting is that AKA's killers were arrested in Cape Town in an area known to be "controlled" by the "Se*y Boys". From KZN all the way to gang territory in Cape Town? There might be more to this case than what meets the eye."

"I am part of the 1% that believe the police caught AKA's killers."

@MenziwokuhleMa1 also said:

"We saw the people who actually killed AKA on that CCTV footage. SAPS thinks we were born yesterday. Those people they arrested are not even close to being the actual killers. I'm afraid we are going to watch the Senzo Meyiwa drama all over again."

@Nkosinathi_99 added:

"Another wrongful arrest for AKA killers! It's a Mess!!! Clearly, Bheki Cele and Masemola never passed a psychometric test! #JusticeForAKA"
