AKA’s mom Lynn Forbes on Nelli Tembe’s passing

It’s been exactly 365 days since the beautiful Anele Tembe lost her life and those close to her are hurt. Anele Tembe was AKA’s fiancée who died after allegedly jumping off from a Cape Town hotel on April 10.

Taking to social media, AKA’s mother Lynn Forbes shared a few words as she remembers Anele. She described this period as the most difficult of them all and said although time heals everything, their scars shall remain.

May your soul rest peacefully Nelz. It’s been the most difficult year, time heals but the scars will remain forever.”

She also thought of her son AKA, saying she wishes she could take away his pin, “I wish I could take your pain away Kiernan. I continue to pray for peace and the healing of both families. I’m grateful for all the love and support we have received in the midst of the pain and the daily challenges we face.”

Her sister Pali Tembe as well said a few words, “Just when you feel like you’ve started healing,” and then added 365 days and a heart emoji.

A few months after her death, Pali said she dreamt about her, “I dreamt about you my angel…5 months without you and it sucks,” she wrote on her deleted post, as quoted by TshisaLive.

One person who is also deeply hurt as her death happened in his care, is AKA. Earlier this morning he shared a few words saying he prays that her family and friends heal from this. He also hinted that they should all come together as two families who loved Anele, and pay their respects.

“I’ll remember this day for the rest of my life. 11/04/2021. Everyday I pray for the healing of your family and my family. I hope one day we can all come together and pay our respects to you and your memory at the same place and at the same time,” he tweeted.

AKA has received a lot of love and hate from people before and he has always acknowledged the love. He once thanked the people who stuck by him as well.

“4 months to this day. It never goes away. Everyday I pray for her, myself and our families. I will never be the same person I was, but I will do the best I can with the gift and opportunity of life that I still have left, [sic]. Thank You to everyone who has stuck by me and our respective families…you know who you are.”

AKA has since moved on with his new girlfriend Nadia Nakai and they seem to be hitting it off quiet well. Ntsiki though did not like this one bit especially after AKA flaunted their love for everyone to see. She questioned why the Tembe family said she did not commit suicide and why did they walk behind the Forbes family.

“At the funeral, Nelli’s siblings had to walk BEHIND the Forbes family. Barely six months had passed and how quickly their little sister was replaced…After they couldn’t walk beside her coffin. This is so deeply disturbing for me.”

“One day someone needs to explain why the family said Nelli didn’t commit suicide….”
