According to Netwerk24 one of the three suspects is allegedly linked to a number of taxi murders in KwaZulu-Natal. The three reportedly posed as SASSA workers who would also go around trying to assist people to apply for social grants.

In addition to the arrest, the police also found a white Mercedes Benz, which they suspect was used as a getaway car on the night of the murder of Supa Mega.

Speaking to IOL, is one of the shop owners in Belhar who said cops were undercover and were watching the trios movements very closely.

“There’s an ATM on a corner but it looked like they were trying to rob the ATM. There were undercover police officers on the scene," said the source.

“One of the officers was inside my store and was watching the suspects. They were just standing around the ATM when they were arrested. Police were shouting at them, one of the suspects had a gun on him,” said the shopkeeper. He said the whole incident lasted about 30 minutes, and no shots were fired," he added.

The arrest of these suspects was met with mixed emotions from the Megacy. Although the Western Cape police spokesperson Colonel André Traut did not divulge much on the case, he referred the media to the police in KZN since the murder took place there.

When contacted, the KZN police spokesperson Colonel Robert Netshiunda, did not confirm nor deny the arrest of these men. Saying, “We have not received any update on the AKA case.”

The call to have his killers arrested grew when his bodyguard Anwar 'Dogg' joined an  e.TV journalist for her My Guest Tonight with Annika Larsen and said protocol was broken when AKA was sent to Durban, "Ninety percent of our work is the manner in which we move. It’s the planning, how you pre-plan, how you schedule your timing and placing of yourself and the person [you are protecting],” he told Larsen.

"In my absence, protocol was breached. Kiernan was called and invited to go to Florida Road (Wish) which he accepted and he went. Had I been there, that protocol would not have been breached, simply because that call would’ve came through the road manager,” Dogg said.

His fanbase, Megacy even wrote a scathing letter to police minister Bheki Cele, “AKA was not just an artist, he was a patriot. He cared deeply about South Africa and performed, almost always, with the South African flag around his mic. The least South Africa can do for him right now is to ensure that his murderers are put behind bars," the letter states.

“We demand justice for AKA. We need assurance from the police that they are indeed working on this case and that substantive progress has been made thus far”
