According to a statement on Monday by Western Cape Hawks spokesperson Philani Nkwalase, a multi-disciplinary team, led by the Hawks, together with crime intelligence, provincial detectives and anti-gang units were "seized with the investigation".

"No arrest [has been made] at this stage, but our joint team is working around the clock to secure the arrest of the killer/s," Nkwalase said.

He did not confirm or deny the existence of the footage, saying he could not reveal anything relating to the video at this stage "as it forms part of the ongoing investigation".

"We can safely say that the police are following all possible leads," Nkwalase added.

News24 reported on Sunday that a R1 million reward had been offered for information that would lead to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for arranging the murder of the anti-gang detective.

Forensics for Justice, led by forensic consultant Paul O'Sullivan, offered the reward on Sunday in a WhatsApp message.

Kinnear was shot dead in front of his house in Bishop Lavis in Cape Town on Friday.

His murder was suspected to be an assassination. However, police had not confirmed this and would not speculate on the possible motive for the killing, News24 reported.
