The ANC Women's League (ANCWL) and the EFF has sent its heartfelt condolences to family, relatives and friends of Mokoena. Family‚ friends and neighbours even lined the walls of the court.
The court clerk told those in the public gallery that the magistrate had instructed that no one was allowed to wear political regalia in the court.
Sandile Mantsoe‚ the man accused of killing Karabo Mokoena.
After several minutes of negotiations, the group came to a settlement with the court officials and they were eventually granted access.
Mantsoe appeared in court‚ emotionless‚ dressed in an Adidas jacket‚ with his gold and black hair glistening in the light of the courtroom.
Mantsoe, who grew up in Mpumalanga, spoke through his lawyer and indicated that he did not mind the presence of the media because his visuals were already circulating all over social media.
Mantsoe appeared unfazed as he headed out.
Naija News learn that the Karabo was declared missing on Friday, April, 28.
The state says it isn't aware of these allegations - but it's confirmed that Mantsoe pointed to the location where he allegedly dumped Mokoena's body.
Mokoena's father wrote on Facebook a day ago that her boyfriend had confessed to the murder, though police would not confirm this. He reportedly led them to the victim's body, but police have not confirmed this.
Meanwhile‚ the fragile Mokoena family requested privacy‚ barring the media from taking their pictures.
