Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi is mourning the death of Asithandile “Kwasa” Zozo, the 20-year-old Wits University student who was allegedly killed by her boyfriend.
A grieving Zozi took to Twitter on Monday to reveal that she knew Kwasa personally. The young woman was the Eastern Cape beauty queen’s little sister’s friend.
“My little sister's friend, a beautiful joy to me and my family. She was stabbed to death by a boy because she didn't want him. I don't even know what to say. Ngxesi Malebomvu ntombi encinci. Uphumle ngoxolo,” she tweeted, alongside pictures of Kwasa.

While August is Women’s Month, it is also a month in which Mzansi
remembers the brutal murder of Uyinene Mrwetyana. Another young woman whose brutal
rape and murder shocked the nation and had women all over the country asking if
they were next.
On Tuesday, South Africans woke up to the Twitter hashtag #JusticeForKwasa, as many shared their frustration and anger over the never-ending femicide in the country.
According to News24, Asithandile was a first-year student at Wits University and was stabbed to death in Dutywa in the Eastern Cape, allegedly by a man she was dating.
“It is alleged that the suspect was seen chasing [the victim] at the flat [in Butterworth] where she was residing. It's also alleged the suspect stabbed her and she died at the scene on Monday,” said Eastern Cape provincial police spokesperson Captain Khaya Tonjeni.
It was also reported that the alleged killer tried to take his own life after allegedly stabbing Kwasa and is due to appear in court today, after being under police guard in Butterworth Hospital.
