AKA will not get a state funeral

The Presidency has rejected a proposal from the Guanteng Premier Panyaza Lusuif’s office to give Kiernan “AKA“ Forbes a state funeral.


According to the report, Guanteng Premier Panyaza Lusuif’s office requested President Cyril Ramaphosa to hold a provincial State Funeral in honor of the late rapper Kiernan AKA Forbes by draping his coffin with the South African flag and flying the flag at half-mast.

“We felt that a person of this international stature… there must be some form of honour and we want to clarify that it was not a financial contribution, but it was an honour of draping the coffin, ensuring the flag flies at half-mast, and ensuring that it [is] a befitting funeral.”

“We will also provide security support for the family and ensure that the family feels our support and our comfort.”

AKA was killed in front of a restaurant on Florida Road in Durban, in a crime that looked like a hit.
