Moses Tembe Responds To AKA’s Claims Of Not Being Allowed To Speak At Nelli’s Funeral
Moses Tembe Responds To AKA’s Claims Of Not Being Allowed To Speak At Nelli’s Funeral: In response to AKA‘s claims of not being allowed to speak at his late girlfriend’s funeral, the girl’s father Moses Tembe revealed to the public that that never happened.
Moses revealed that AKA never made any request to speak at his daughter’s funeral. AKA had claimed that he wrote an eulogy for his late fiancee, Nelli Tembe but didn’t see his name in the program booklet. The rapper stated that he was astonished at the fact that police minister, Bheki Cele was allowed to speak while himself being the husband of the deceased was not allowed.
In a statement, Moses shared his own side of the story saying; “We held memorial services all week preceding Anele’s funeral service. Kiernan’s father and Kiernan’s friend spoke alongside Tembe family. Kiernan never made a request nor was he ever denied an opportunity to read his message on the day of the funeral.
“The funeral program never included Mr Bheki Cele but the program director used his prerogative to invite him to the podium, a courtesy that would have been given to any minister. Personally, I have seen Mr Bheki Cele and other ministers in attendance to many funerals and ours was no exception.
“We are a private family and it has been like that for decades. We view such relationships as private and treat as such… We would like to be given space to grieve. We’ve lost our daughter and we are hurting badly.”
