Police spokesperson, Brigadier Tembinkosi Kinana said the suspect is currently under police guard and that once he has recovered and has been discharged from hospital, “he will be charged for murder and further taken to Idutywa Magistrate Court to face justice”.

Police said according to information they have obtained, the suspect, who is estimated to be 23-years-old, was seen allegedly chasing Zozo before finally stabbing her.

“She sadly died at the scene. Police visited the scene of the crime and are currently investigating the circumstances which culminated to the incident.”

Eastern Cape police commissioner, Lieutenant General Liziwe Ntshinga has condemned “in the strongest terms” Zozo’s “tragic murder” and “vouched” that her death “will not dampen the spirit of the police to fight women abuse in all its shapes and forms”.
“It is just unbelievable that in our desperate attempts to end the scourge of gender-based violence in our society, our message seems to be falling on deaf ears. This is indeed a piece of very devastating news and more examples must be made out of those we have already been arrested in order to send a clear message to other would-be perpetrators of women abuse,” Ntshinga said.

Here are some of the tweets of those mourning Zozo’s murder using #RIPKwasa

The South African law of Justice must change, honestly speaking we are tired of this…Whoever takes the life of another should be issued a death penalty, futhi the person’s death must be broadcasted on SABC (live), jail is not doing enough justice #RIPKwasa — Neani marvel ????
