Twitter user, @dinthotsohle, commented: “What happened to Kwasa has me feeling sick. She tried everything. And the people who could have protected her (her ex’s family, the police) didn’t. She had dreams, a future, a life and it was stolen from her and I feel sick to my soul about it. #JusticeForKwasa.” Another, @modiegi_mots, added: “Every day it’s a new name. From the bottom of my heart I’m so so tired of men. I pray she gets justice and her soul finds peace #JusticeForKwasa.”
