Karabo Mokoena was laid to rest at the West Park cemetery this afternoon.

Karabo was laid to rest in a stunning white coffin, and this is the moment it arrives in church.


Karabo’s older sister, Bontle, could barely speak as she thanked her relatives and friends for their support. “Karabo’s friends, please watch DSTV with me,” she said.

Attendees were emotional as Bontle said she couldn’t believe her sister was gone.

The programme was filled with pictures of a young Karabo.
