- Anele Nelli Tembe’s passing at the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town, has left many feeling very heavy and unsure
- The Pepperclub Hotel has offered to counsel all staff members, not only those who were directly affected by the terrible incident
- The nature of Nelli’s death has not been confirmed but the hotel remains functional and staff are dealing well
Anele Nelli Tembe’s passing has not only affected fans, friends and family, but the staff of Pepperclub Hotel too. The hotel is now counselling the staff members who witnessed the horrific incident.
While it has not been revealed whether Nelli’s death was an accident, suicide or murder, investigations are ongoing and the hotel is involved. Staff are being questioned and are under a lot of stress.
Pepperclub Hotel general manager Efi Ella told TshisaLIVE that the hotel was offering affected staff members counselling to deal with the trauma. The counselling is being offered to all staff members, not only those who witnessed the incident or had a direct relation to it.
“The hotel is offering staff counselling and that has been done already. If there is a need we will offer more. The counselling is open to any staff member.”
Ella explained that only a few staff members had been directly affected, so the hotel was still operational and staff were generally in good mental and physical health.
“Very few were exposed so this has not been an overall challenge. A couple have been overwhelmed and distressed and were offered counselling. Other than that we are well. It goes without saying that we are devastated by this event and send our deepest condolences to both families.”
Briefly New recently reported that the love of AKA's life, Nelli Tembe passed away tragically on Sunday morning and her memorial service is going to take place on Thursday.
