#RIPKARABO is Trending on Twitter

 

#RIPKARABO is Trending on TwitterSouth Africa is outraged with the news of Karabo, #RIPKARABO is trending on Twitter right now. I am a parent and cannot even begin to say I know what you are going through to Karabo’s parents.

Such a huge loss and South Africa feels your pain especially as women.

It is often said that the people who hurt us the most it is people we love and hold dear. Do not care how heated the argument was.

Don’t know what I would do if such a horrible act happend to my daughter, then again, there is nothing I can do but cry.

To the Mokoena family from my family, we send you our condolences.

Some say time heals wounds but I don’t think time can ease the pain of losing a child. I am heartbroken not only as a mother, but a woman, this could have happened to anyone of us.

Any kind of abuse from domestic to child abuse is  close to my heart  because  I am a survivor of child and emotional abuse.

All I want to know is what happened and the culprit will not disclose the darkness that lead to him to committing such a heartless act.

Did he think about Karabo’s parents? Did he even stop to question his actions? Did he even have doubts when he lit the match and watched it fall on her body setting her body on fire? If only he could answer these questions truthfully.

Don’t know Karabo but from seeing her pictures, she looked like a humble and kind person. May your soul rest in peace beautiful rose.

On the #RIPKarabo on Twitter people are asking for the death penalty. What will death penalty change, the murderous get away with it in South Africa. Our justice system is so rotten with corruption.

The life of a woman has been lost and she is not the first one and she won’t be the last one too. The South African government has failed women and children.

To the Mokeona family hope with time you find peace in this inhuman act. To the killer (Your name is not worth mentioning), who gave you the right to take Karabo’s life and why should you have yours?

Acts like this make me wonder is it the reflection of the kind of a mother that raised that man? When will some men learn that when dating or married to a woman does not mean you own them.

I am so  angry, heartbroken and numb.

How to Make Extra Money Online in South Africa?

How to make extra money online in South Africa? I remember how I used to ask Google that question when I was home after giving birth to my baby. I got so bored and could not stand not having any income on my own, that’s how my journey on making extra money online begun.

Finding ways to supplement your income online is a lot of work, especially in South Africa because there are a lot of scams out there. I must say after searching all those years I have finally found some local survey companies that offer payment in exchange for your opinion.

I will be sharing with you my favourite South African survey panels with you below. One thing you must always remember is to never pay to be a member of a survey panel. When they ask for a fee run.

YourView

The Your View panel website is maintained and administered by the KLA (Kaufman Levin Associates), more info available under about us on their website. Payment Methods offered include Woolworths Vouchers, Cash, Airtime and Takealot Vouchers.

TUAI (Tell us about it)

Tell Us About It (TUAI) is a consumer panel run by Panel Services Africa, more information available under this about us on their website. Payment methods include cash, Woolworth and Takealot vouchers and airtime.

Enlighten Panel

Been a member for a very long time back to the days when it was survey basket. They have a lot of surveys and they also have an opinion forum that’s run for a week and you can make up to R150. Their payment methods include YuppieChef, Takealot, Numetro and Woolworths vouchers, airtime and recently added the Fnb Ewallet option.

Answered Insight

Answered insight is by far my favourite South African survey company because it pays R20.00 per survey and if the survey is long its double the amount. They make cash payment straight into your account within 5 working days.

Springvale Online

Is the slowest for me and they take time to process payment. You should be patient when joining this panel. Their payment methods include airtime and cash.

I have only shared my trusted survey panels and they are reliable and legit. You can join and do them on your spare time and redeem your points for anything from airtime to cash before month end pay check comes.

 

Do you have any ideas on how to make extra money online in South Africa?

 

I love My Country South Africa

Flag_of_South_Africa.svg

South Africa has problems and it’s not perfect, but it’s better than most countries in the world and as a woman I am lucky to have been born in South Africa and I am proud to have given birth to my daughter in this country.

Women of South Africa have a rich story our ancestors fought for our rights and because of them, I am able to type this blog post right now. There are countries where women are oppressed and not given the opportunity to study further or even study once they reach a certain age, they are forced into arranged marriages countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan and India to name a few. In those countries a woman’s life does not matter, and they have no say unless they are lucky to have parents who want a better future but it’s unlikely.

I love my country South Africa because as a woman I have the right to education and a better life, I have the right to marry whomever I want to marry if I want to get married, it’s not forced down on me as a way of life and I love my country South Africa because a woman’s life matters.

Imagine living in a country where you are not allowed to open a bank account, drive a car, trying clothes when shopping because you are a woman. There are even countries that still discriminate against women and men deem themselves superior to woman for different self-serving reasons it is truly disgusting that another human can decide how you live your life just because you are a WOMAN. A woman’s job is not to get married, have children and be a lifetime maid for the mother in law it’s really appalling what some women go through.

love my country South Africa because I have the right to be human and be free to do whatever and be anything. Yes, we do have huge problems as a nation such as poverty, racism and crime to name a few, but as a woman I am glad to be South African.

Thank you to the 20 000 women who marched to the Union Building in Pretoria in 1956, thank you for paving the way me and for giving me the chance to be proud to have a daughter in South Africa.

We are women from every part of South Africa.
We are women of every race, we come from the cities and the towns, from the reserves and the villages.
We come as women united in our purpose to save the African women from the degradation of passes…
In the name of women of South Africa, we say to you, each one of us, African, European, Indian, Coloured, that we are opposed to the pass system. We voters and vote less, call upon your Government not to issue passes to African women.
We shall not rest until ALL pass laws and all forms of permits restricting our freedom have been abolished.
We shall not rest until we have won for our children their fundamental rights of freedom, justice, and security.

– Taken from a Petition presented to the Prime Minister on 9 August 1956.

What makes you proud to be a woman in your country?
