Five of the seven men accused of being involved in the murder of South African rapper Kiernan Forbes, popularly known as AKA, and his close friend, celebrity chef and entrepreneur Tebello “Tibz” Motshoane, have made an initial court appearance.

The proceedings, which were broadcast live on several South African TV channels, have now been postponed until next week.

When the five first walked into the dock, they stood looking down with their faces covered.

The prosecutor read out 10 charges, including murder, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder and unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition.

AKA and Motshoane were gunned down outside a restaurant in the coastal city of Durban a year ago. The murder shocked South Africa, which has one of the highest crime rates in the world.

Court proceedings were watched on by AKA’s father, Tony Forbes, Police Minister Bheki Cele and the province’s police commissioner Lt Gen Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi.
