If you've seen this young lady's image across your timeline in the past few days, then you will be sad (and disgusted) to hear that Karabo Mokoena has been found, sadly she was not found alive. 

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. 

This morning, we were saddened 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 and burning her corpse. 

A number of ZAlebs 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. 

Even Maps Maponyane couldn't help but express disappointment at the status quo

Model and presenter K Naomi even opened up about how her own life/family has been affected by such an incident. 

Pabi Moloi also shared the same sentiments as K Naomi and it seems as though she also has gone through such a heartbreaking loss.

This situation is heart-wrenching. And it is the second case in two weeks as another woman was buried last Tuesday following her murder at the hands of her fiance'. 

Stop telling women to be more vigilant and start teaching the men in your life to be better human beings. Even something as small as a sick joke about beating, raping or murdering a woman is a sign to the darkness someone may harbour in his heart. 

Women have been vigilant, but it is not vigilance that protects us.
