**Summary:**Suppose that a separable exact $C^*$-algebra $A$ is KK-equivalent to a commutative $C^*$-algebra and that $A$ has a separating sequence of unital $*$-homomorphisms into simple AF-algebras. Under these conditions we show that $A$ embeds unitally in a simple AF-algebra. We apply this result to a class of amenable groups.
