A 25-year-old South African intern doctor Shongile Nkwhashu has been murdered by her boyfriend in her room for a reason yet to be known as the police investigation continues.
The news stirred massive reactions online especially on Twitter where the hashtags #RIPShongileNkwhashu and #JusticeforShongile have been trending.
Reports indicate that the mother of the lady who had suffered through thick and thin for the daughter to amount to something was inconsolable when her daughter was declared dead at the hospital.
It is gathered that the police in Mankweng have arrested a 25-year-old suspect, in connection with the murder of Shongile Pretty Nkwashu whose body was found in her room.
Perhaps, the most heartbreaking bit of the entire story was that Shongile got murdered after just two weeks of employment as a doctor by the insecure boyfriend.
