The late Anele ‘Nelli’ Tembe fell to her death at the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town on April 11. Her death was then investigated, but 3 months later, the Tembe family still has not found closure. In the midst of all of this, a lot has been said by many people, especially on social media.
But what does this new information mean for AKA? Is he a suspect? Is the case a murder or suicide case?
Sources have suggested that AKA may actually be off the hook as the case is reopened. What may have saved the rapper is his interview with Thembekile Mrototo in which he spoke about the the different incidents when his late fiancée attempted to commit suicide.
The NPA found that the police had initially investigated Anele’s death as a murder case with AKA as the prime suspect, and did not follow “standard procedure for all matters where the deceased dies of unnatural causes.” As a result, the docket was sent back so the case is now investigated as suicide.
