Karabo Mokoena's family calls on SA to stand up against women abuse
The 22-year-old woman’s burnt body was later found in a shallow grave in Lyndhurst.
JOHANNESBURG - The family of a Johannesburg woman who was murdered, allegedly by her boyfriend, has called on South Africans to stand up against women abuse.
Twenty-two-year-old Karabo Mokoena was reported missing in April.
Her burnt body was later found in a shallow grave in Lyndhurst.
It’s now emerged that a case of assault was already being investigated by police at the time of her death, against her boyfriend who is set to appear in court on Friday morning.
Her uncle Tshepo Mokoena said: “We need to also teach young boys that if you have an argument with your girlfriend maybe walk away. I’m teaching boys raised without fathers, that if you have a problem come to us. All that I was teaching people for years is coming back to me, it’s terribly shocking.”
