Celebrities have blown the whistle on women abuse and murder that was an avoided motion in South Africa until the shocking revelation of a young lady’s death!
You might have seen Karabo Mokoena’s photos and missing alerts a couple of times on your timeline in the past few days, she had reportedly been missing since the 28th of April 2017 and efforts to find her gained traction after news of her disappearance went viral

Earlier this morning, South Africans were shocked to hear that a Facebook account reportedly belonging to her father confirmed that she had been found dead and her boyfriend confessed to killing her then burning her corpse.
While news of Karabo’s death spread all across Mzansi, our celebrities have since taken to social media to voice their outrage about the continued abuse and murder of women at the hands of men.
Vuyo Ngcukana touched on a very important point, reminding everyone that vigilance is not what keeps us safe from the unending harassment and abuse we are forced to encounter on a daily basis.
Can we stop asking women to be vigilant and more aware,the message should rather focus on telling MEN to stop killing them.

Even Maps Maponyane couldn’t help but express disappointment at the status quo
Surely there comes a time when enough really IS enough and we all TRULY protect women, and CALL OUT & SHAME every single man that doesn't!!?

We aren't safe. Women aren't safe. We are in serious danger. At work, school, church and at home with loved ones. #RIPKarabo

: I'll say it again;
Women are being hunted. Our most imminent threat is a man. #RIPKarabo

Karabo’s tragic death is the second case in two weeks after another woman was buried last Tuesday following her murder at the hands of her fiancé.
We at Entertainment_SA send our heartfelt condolences to both of the deceased women’s families.
