I had never heard of Reeva Steenkamp before the incident.

I wanted to see what she looked like and who she was. I did not watch the whole program, just a few clips of her. I was not shocked for the SABC1 airing the program, however, I was shocked to think that how could someone have murdered her.

She was beautiful, seemed to be a happy, nice and sweet young woman with a head full of dreams and with the most sincere and incredible smile.

After seeing this beautiful young woman laughing, joking and full of life, throwing kisses at the cameras and saying how much she loved us, I could not contain this sense of loss, sadness, anger and tears.

After seeing you I can only say that I am also going to miss you, we all loved you. 

So how could this have happened? Too many guns in irresponsible hands? Too much rage? 2 500 women are murdered in South Africa at the hands of their partners or someone who knew them?

Are these real men or cowards with low esteem, egoistical and narcissistic?!
