Over the weekend, the father of Anele Tembe told SABC News that he suspects foul play in his daughter’s death.

“From what we’ve heard as facts, that she was actually recognised by or found out by some other lady in the street and so on and on, you know, unattended to. One got a sense that there could be some foul play, but one was not there. This matter is a subject of the inquest. I truly believe that the process must be respected. It would be amiss of me to get into the details of the inquest,” he told the broadcaster. 

Her sister also took to Twitter to remember Anele. 

"My life changed when yours ended, here on earth, 3yrs ago on this day," she wrote. 

"I love you always maTembe," she added.
