Palesa Tembe Biography

From when she was young, she knew that the world of presenting was where she belonged and she wasted no time leaping into that orbit.
Growing up, two women inspired her: her mother Nomvuzo and the American entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey. Ms Winfrey represented the peak that Palesa dreams to achieve in her career, and she is pretty well on her way.

The Afternoon Express presenter has several siblings, the most famous of them being Anele “Nelli” Tembe, who reportedly jumped to her death from the 10th floor of a hotel in Cape Town in 2021. It is one tragic death that has refused to go away, and Palesa often recalls it with great agony.
her other siblings are Mbali, Zomatanga, Nosipho and Vukile.
