“It is with grave concern that my family and I have had to endure a flurry of posts on various social media platforms that accuse me, and members of my family, of being involved in the death of Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes. These accusations are untrue and without substance,” he said.

 

 

“I categorically state that my family feels the pain of the Forbes family and would never be involved in an abhorrent act of this nature.”

 

“I respectfully request the individuals making these baseless statements to refrain from doing so,” he added.

 

Tembe died in April 2021, after succumbing to her injuries when she fell from the 10th floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Loop Street, Cape Town. Tembe was in a romantic relationship and engaged to Forbes at the time of her untimely death.
