The country is still reeling with shock after rapper AKA’s fiancée Anele “Nelli” Tembe fell to her death from the 10th floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town on Sunday.
The rooms are similar and feature a lounge area, en-suite bathroom, and balcony overlooking the city, Table Mountain, Signal Hill or Table Bay.
Contrary to several reports, the couple were not staying in the penthouse, which is in fact situated on the 20th floor of the building. The penthouse has also been sold to a private owner and is no longer part of the hotel.
The road outside the hotel was blocked off on Sunday following Nelli’s death, with police on the scene looking for clues.
Netcare 911 spokesperson Shawn Herbst said paramedics arrived on the scene and found a 22-year-old female who had allegedly jumped from the 10th floor, landing on the road below.
He confirmed the woman was found [email protected] by the first responders and that she was in a critical condition.
Witnesses who were staying at the hotel told a local publication they had heard a woman screaming, followed by a loud “doef” sound, and then a man shouting.
A witness also reported hearing a man crying on Sunday morning, adding that the couple had been spotted the night before in the hotel elevator looking “loved up”.
