South Africa is still mourning the tragic and brutal death of UCT student Uyinene 'Nene' Mrwetyana after her killer and rapist confessed.
The mystery around Uyinene's disappearance has been cleared, but the truth of what happened to the bright young student has left South Africans shattered.
Her sister, Khanya, took to social media to pen exactly how she felt about her death and it had Mzansi reaching for the tissues.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Khanya said sorry to her sister for what had happened to her and that she had been all alone when happened.
Her touching post read:
"What haunts me the most isn't the fact that you're gone and taken away from us so soon, it's the thought of the fear and pain you experienced all alone. I'm so sorry Bhelekazi. I'm so sorry you had to be alive at a time where being a woman is all it takes to set a man off.
"Now we hold on to the memories we shared together and the thought of what could've become of you had that man not violated you. Hurt. -That's what I am. That's what we all are. Such a beautiful soul with an entire future and opportunities awaiting her. God. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, where my faith will be made stronger. All the other times I said I was hurt or I was crying, I was probably being impossible.
"Nothing compares to what I'm feeling right now. All air has left my lungs and my heart is right there below my knees. But even so, it is well with my soul. Its so much more harder to remain safe. Not even sending my location or memorising number plates is enough. I could be walking to the bathroom eMall and just like that my story ends.
"It's quite sad. We now move around wondering who's next because it just doesn't stop. Will the storm ever calm? I will never question God but I ask that he heals our hearts as your family, your friends, as women, as a country and we remain stronger in faith. Uyinene, you're still my baby sister and always will be. I love you so much Nene wam, Bhelekazi, Mafu, Ndabezitha, Langa lokulungu. Fly away my butterfly."
