Mokoena's charred remains were discovered in a shallow grave in Lyndhurst, and her family claimed she was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend.
As condolences and condemnation continue to spread online, listeners have debated the solutions needed to address the scourge of domestic violence and intimate partner violence facing women.
Caller Lawrence and others have argued that the death sentence must be introduced to deter men from abusing or killing women.
What kind of a human being kills another then refuses the family to say goodbye by burning them?— Lawrence, caller
Meanwhile, Vusi and other male callers emphasised the importance of dialogue, adding that many men are complicit in sexual violence through their silence.
He says South African men should take action against violence perpetuated against women and feel responsible for fighting femicide and rape.
I believe that all men are rapists. You know why? Because there are levels of involvement in these things. We are involved by just watching, not saying anything and not being vocal or [critical].— Vusi, caller
What are we doing as men? We are just [abandoning] the responsibility of men of SA. We are standing by the [side]line and watching.— Vusi, caller

The problem that is permeating men in the country is because we grow up thinking we own women. Patriarchy has a big role to play in this.— Dumo, caller
We've got to tech young boys properly in the schools.. and homes. We've got to remove this ownership thing. We don't own anybody.— Dumo, caller
As a man, I feel that we need to have more male voices advocating against the rape issue. The problem is that men fail to empathise with women.— Kenny, caller
