"It wasn't a stunner", Popi's sister Lihle told VICE, "since it's something that we're used to in South Africa. That is to say, who gets their justice."⁣ 

⁣The police's choice to re-investigate the case follows the Amnesty International 'write for Rights' mission, which required a reasonable and unbiased examination concerning the homicide. It brought about in excess of 316,000 activities from general society, for example, appeal marks. 

⁣Following the declaration, Lihle discussed a recharged sensation of expectation in seeing advancements for the situation. "I feel hopeful - I feel like something is at last going to occur. I feel like there's a change coming. I feel like the South African Police Service authorities we just addressed are not beguiling us, and they are not kidding about helping."⁣ 

She added: "There are explicit things that they said they would do - and it is simpler for me to then development on their words and what they said. Along these lines, I feel like at long last, something is going to change."⁣
