Nelli Tembe, the fiancée of popular South African rapper, AKA, has died after falling from the 10th floor of Pepperclub Hotel located in Central Cape Town.
The incident which took place in the early hours of Sunday, April 11, has stirred suspicions of suicide but the Police are yet to conclude their investigations.
A Police spokesperson said crime-scene experts are still looking for clues at the hotel.
A statement from South Africa’s emergency service provider, Netcare 911, reads:
“Cape Town Central police are investigating an inquest case after an incident at a hotel this morning at about 7.45 am on the corners of Loop and Bloem streets, Cape Town CBD, where the body of a 22-year-old woman was found deceased.
“Witnesses at the scene described hearing shouting and a ‘loud doof’ sound and said they had heard a man calling security and crying. Paramedics on the scene have said a female had allegedly jumped from the 10th floor of that building.
“When paramedics arrived on the scene, she had sustained polytraumatic injuries. She was in a critical condition and they started a full life-support resuscitation. Unfortunately, her injuries were too severe and she was declared deceased.”
