‘She did not commit suicide’ – Nelli Tembe’s father says as she is laid to rest
The father to Nelli Tembe, South African rapper AKA’s late girlfriend has denied that she committed suicide.
On Friday, April 16, 2021, the businessman announced this as his daughter lay in state at the Durban International Conference Centre. In a letter read by businessman Sandile Zungu, Tembe said his daughter was neither suicidal nor did she commit suicide.
“As Anele’s father, I categorically state that Anele was neither suicidal nor did she commit suicide. We must as a matter of priority deal with the scourge that bedevils our youth. Alcohol which is overused and drugs. Fellow South Africans we better wake up and smell the coffee, we have a serious problem with substance abuse.” he wrote.
“I cannot allow an unfortunate narrative to go unchallenged, a narrative that irks me to no end … that is ‘Anele was chronically suicidal. All I can say is until Anele turned 21, not a single member of her family, my family would have associated her with suicide.”
