Anele Tembe lost her life in April 2021 due to injuries sustained in a fall from the 10th floor at the Pepper Club Hotel in Loop Street, Cape Town. In honor of their daughter, the Tembe family generously contributed to the renovation of the library.

Designed by Durban Girls’ College alumna Andrea Kleinloog, the library symbolizes the commitment to excellence at the school. Anele’s brother, Vukile, shared with TshisaLIVE that establishing this tribute library was a cause dear to her heart.

“Anele loved her school, it shaped part of who she was. We knew this,” he said. “She embraced knowledge and education. Libraries last long in a community provided the library is consistent. Given Anele’s school and its legacy of more than 100 years, I believe they will do well in preserving this tribute for generations to come.”

Reflecting on the challenging journey of healing since Anele’s passing, Vukile expressed gratitude for the support of family and friends.

“Over the [past] three years, it’s been a process of healing, leaning towards God and doing activities that will bring us ease — prayer, exercising, with supportive family members and friends. Therefore, thankful for family support and friends.”
