Staff at the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town, where SA rapper AKA’s fiancée Anele “Nellie” Tembe died are receiving counselling.
The 22-year-old apparently fell from the 10th storey of a hotel in the city centre on Sunday morning.
Pepperclub Hotel management told the Cape Times that their staff have been offered counselling.
Hotel general manager Efi Ella said AKA had been a regular visitor.
“It’s very unfortunate, Nellie, she is 22 years old, her partner is Mr Forbes, who is a valued guest of ours and has been staying with us for many, many years, and we are very sad about this tragedy. Obviously, it’s traumatizing so we are offering counselling to the team,” he said.
EWN has reported that Tembe’s death is being treated as a suicide.
An inquest docket has been opened by police who are looking for potential witnesses.
In a joint statement on Sunday, the Tembe and Forbes families said she would be remembered as a gifted, sweet-natured young woman.
