Family warned Karabo Mokoena several times to leave Mantsoe, court hears

The murder trial of Sandile Mantsoe, accused of killing his girlfriend Karabo Mokoena, burning her body and dumping it in a veld last year April, is continuing in the High Court in Johannesburg.

According to EWN reporter Kgomotso Modise, Mokoena's sister Bontle Mokoena took to the witness stand, speaking of the last time she saw her as she was leaving home to go to a party.

Bontle also gave an account of the relationship between Mantsoe and her sister, how it initially looked like any other normal relationship but later heard of how her sister was treated with so much disregard.
