Nelli Tembe latest: Couple at hotel say they heard hysteric screams before fatal fall
A woman who stayed at the Pepperclub Hotel claimed to have heard a young lady screaming, 'Leave me alone. Don't touch me' before Nelli Tembe plunged to her death.
In the latest news following rapper AKA’s fiancée Anele “Nelli” Tembe’s shock death on Sunday 11 April, a woman who also stayed at the Pepperclub Hotel, in Cape Town, claims she and her husband heard a young lady hysterically screaming before there was a loud thud.
The information was shared via a tweet on Wednesday 14 April.
YOUNG LADY SCREAMING ‘LEAVE ME ALONE’
A screenshot was posted under a comment of a tweet where a woman claimed she and her husband, who stayed at the Pepperclub Hotel, woke up on Sunday morning to a “young lady hysterically screaming”.
“My husband and I were on the 15th floor of the Pepperclub hotel when we woke up to the sounds of a young lady hysterically screaming, ‘Leave me alone! Don’t touch me’,” read the screenshot.
The couple then heard a loud crash and a man’s voice screaming “Oh my God! Oh my God!” The woman says her husband went down to the ground floor and a young girl was laying there naked and unconscious but still breathing.
“I don’t know what happened before the incident where she lost her life, but this young lady was beyond upset,” the woman added.
However, another Twitter user weighed in and said that what was heard is open for interpretation.
While another supported this theory.
IS AKA UNDER INVESTIGATION?
A report by the Daily Mail claims that AKA is being investigated following his fianceé’s death.
The South African spoke to Western Cape police spokesperson Andre Traut on 14 April after the report surfaced with the headline, “Police investigate South African rapper AKA after his fiance’s death.
Traut however did not confirm that rapper AKA is ‘under investigation’ for the death of Nelli Tembe.
According to the police spokesperson, Cape Town police are “currently investigating the circumstances surrounding her death” and that is “all I can say at the moment”.
ONLINE SLEUTHS CONTINUE TO LOOK FOR ANSWERS
Rumours circulating her mysterious death have been circulating on social media since the news broke on Sunday.
According to some Tweeps, Nelli Tembe suffered from depression and this was not the first time she attempted to take her own life. Last year, she also is rumoured to have tried to commit suicide by jumping off the Hilton Hotel in Durban.
Other Tweeps questioned this by saying that Nelli Tembe had no reason to feel depressed as the recently engaged Tembe was seen happy and dancing with AKA hours before the news of her tragic death broke.
Others are still questioning why she was found naked.
