The murder of Charné Viljoen on May 3 left people speechless, angry, and heartbroken. However, the court case against the alleged murderer, her ex-boyfriend Qwen Steenberg has been delayed again.
According to IOL, Viljoen was found stabbed to death outside a shopping centre in Saxton Sea, Atlantis.
Her death came a little over a month after her 21st birthday according to @KeepTheEnergy, and she was a mother.
Her family is expressing that they are extremely upset over the delay of the court case against Steenberg, who abandoned his bail application last month.
Viljoen’s family dressed in black on Friday to call for justice, but the delay of said justice seems to be in persistence.
Africa News Agency (ANA) spoke to Viljoen’s mother, Liezel Duiker who explained that on Friday they had been waiting all morning and were “not even aware that Steenberg had appeared.”
“I am extremely upset,” she expressed.
Of the family’s turmoil, Duiker confessed to ANA that the family was struggling to come to terms with their daughter’s brutal passing, despite the counselling they are receiving is helping as a crutch of support.
Of Viljoen’s son, a 2-year-old, Duiker conveyed that the little one searches for his mother at night and cries uncontrollably.
Steenberg’s case has, as per IOL been postponed to August 6.
What is incredibly chilling is that Viljoen’s last Instagram post said “Good men do Exist,”
