Singer, Eniola Akinbo aka Niyola, is speaking out more about domestic violence after the death of her friend, 22-year-old Karabo Mokoena, who was murdered and burnt to death by her abusive ex-boyfriend, Sandile Mantsoe, in South Africa. Emphasizing on the importance of speaking out and walking away from violent situations, Niyola said;
“This is so hard for me but my friend would have wanted me to help someone through this . I have seen domestic violence first hand and I always stood against it but this time I will do what I can to pull as many people into this fight with me. This guy Sandile not only murdered My friend, he burnt her beyond recognition and had his mother and sister help him clean up . If not for the CCTV no one would have known.
Don’t be fooled about anybody’s supposed family / friend’s support and pacifying. When it comes down to it, they will protect their own. Women I beg you, don’t protect that man by lying to your family or friends about his evil , inhumane ways . Speak out !!!! If you know he is bad for you , don’t say his family loves you … RUN !This one has been charged with pre meditated murder, and a bail hearing in 2 weeks but we won’t rest till justice is served.
You too can get justice even while you’re alive , and you can get your life back before it’s totally lost. If your husband hits you, call the cops, or call someone you know and stop dying in silence. It is not your problem, there’s nothing to be afraid / ashamed of. It’s his cowardice and dementia . #RIPKay”
