AKA’s parents Lynn and Tony Frobes have issued a statement rubbishing the reports that they are seeking donations from the South African public.
In a statement posted on social media, the Forbes family said the public must not be led to believe that they are asking for donations, calling it a scam.
The family’s warning follows the death of their son who gunned down with Tebello Motsoane on February 10 in Durban.
“We would like to bring to your attention there are false requests for donations and investments from people posing as members of the Forbes family. We have not opened any donation accounts or requested any investments,” said the Forbes on Wednesday.
“We are at a loss for words to describe our gratitude for the outpouring of love we’ve received from the Megacy. We’ve seen people deeply hurt and angered by Kiernan’s murder and wanting justice.
“As a family, we empathise with the grief and understand your pain. We are aware of the growing public discontent related to the progress which has been made in the investigation. However, as a family, we are concerned that irresponsible actions, accusations, and assumptions may cause more harm than good.
“We call on the Megacy to mourn responsibly and ask for patience so law enforcers have the space to do their job.”
While there are several media reports suggesting that three suspects have been arrested, KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Col. Robert Netshiunda said there is no update in the investigation.
Meanwhile, Police Minister Bheki Cele’s spokesperson Lirandzu Themba told TimesLIVE on Monday: “Any comment of a breakthrough on the case will be done by KZN SAPS.”
