The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal, eThekwini mayor Mxolisi Kaunda and the EFF have called for the SA Police Service to investigate AKA's murder.

“The murderer is a community member. We are encouraging anyone with information to co-operate with law enforcement agencies. It is a fact that some of those who are involved in such crimes are known by certain community members. We must not allow one individual to disgrace all of us as peace-loving South Africans.

“All spheres of the ANC government must give strong support to the police and encourage them to act firmly and decisively to protect lives, property and the dignity of our nation.” reads the ANC statement.
