"When are they arresting them?"

"We know he's also one of the biggest mafias in KZN, he knows everybody, he could solve this case in 2 mins if he wanted, but let me shut up before I go missing."

@IamthabangK commented:

"Nota told us that the people who murdered AKA are people who were close to him, who knew him, but all we did was to insult him. Now that Bheki Cele has confirmed it on national radio, I guess we do need to apologise to Nota."
