Weeks after the death of AKA’s fiancee, Anele ‘Nellie’ Tembe, the mystery on why she decided to take her life is still haunting many, as they try to join the pieces of her life, which might provide a clue to her tragic demise.
Nellie Tembe jumped to her death from the tenth floor of Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town, after sharing videos of happy hour the previous night.
AKA made this statement in light of a News24 report, which released pictures depicting worrying scenes between him and Nellie. The images are claimed to have have been sourced from a close friend of Nellie’s.
In the images, we see AKA apparently breaking his way through a door in the couple’s apartment in Bryanston, Johannesburg, before approaching the photographer (presumably Nellie). The last picture shows Nellie soothing her jaw with an ice pack, with obvious injuries to her face.
This incident allegedly took place on March 13th, around a month before Nellie’s death.
According to AKA’s statement, he is being considered a “co-operating witness”, rather than a “suspect” in regards to Nellie’s death, however it’s unknown as to whether this will change in light of these worrying images.
