According to the recent report from IOL, the South African Police Service (SAPS) detained the trio in Cape Town after conducting surveillance and monitoring activities for a few weeks.
It is reported that the suspects are currently being interrogated while in police custody.
The identity of the trio has not been disclosed yet, but they were arrested over the weekend in Belhar, situated in the Western Cape region.
On February 10, AKA and his close friend, Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane, were tragically assassinated outside Wish Restaurant along Florida Road in Morningside, Durban.
As AKA was saying goodbye to his friends and preparing to attend his birthday celebration at a nearby club, two unidentified attackers ambushed him.
He was shot twice in the head, and one of the assailants also fatally shot Tibz.
According to reports, the investigation teams had been conducting covert surveillance on the alleged assassins for several weeks.
The South African Police Service (SAPS) detectives and National Intervention Unit members reportedly arrested the three suspects at Erica Square in Belhar on Sunday.
Furthermore, Netwerk24 disclosed that one of the suspects is allegedly connected to multiple taxi-related murders that occurred in Empangeni, located in northern KwaZulu-Natal.
The police reportedly traced the suspects to the Western Cape after they had committed crimes in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN).
The suspects allegedly posed as officials from the Department of Social Development, pretending to be from the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA).
They reportedly visited several houses, claiming to assist people in registering for government grants.
Following investigations, the police tracked the suspects to Belhar, where they kept a close watch on their activities before arresting them.
The police have reportedly found a white Mercedes-Benz, which is believed to be the getaway car used by the suspected assassins on the night that AKA was killed.
