Reeva Steenkamp's mom says her daughter never had sex with Oscar Pistorius (AFP/Getty photo):
South Africa's national soccer goalkeeper and captain Senzo Meyiwa has been shot dead by burglars during a break-in, a killing that shocked the country and turned the spotlight once again on gun violence here. At an emotional news conference on Monday, Meyiwa's colleagues paid tribute to the 27-year-old, who was hit by a single round in the chest on Sunday night as he confronted two intruders at the home of actress and singer Kelly Khumalo. Meyiwa, who was shot in Vosloorus township southeast of Johannesburg, was dead on arrival at hospital, police said. His death highlighted the problem of gun violence in South Africa only days after Paralympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius was jailed for five years for shooting dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp last year. This weekend's Johannesburg derby between Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates - the club Meyiwajoined as a 13- year-old and ended up leading - was postponed as a mark of respect.The derby is usually played in front of 90 000 fans.

Reeva Steenkamp's mother says her daughter was about to leave Oscar Pistorius before the former Olympian killed her:
Oscar’s R17.5 million legal headache By Debora Patta (Labour Guide normally don’t publish this information. This is just to show what legal costs are really about) Oscar Pistorius has racked up lawyers’ bills amounting to R17.5 million – and he cannot pay them. The athlete, sentenced to five years in jail on Tuesday for killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, is broke and still owes his lawyers in the region of R10 million. City Press understands that 27-year-old Pistorius’ financial situation is so dire that his high-powered legal team – led by Advocate Barry Roux SC, and which included Advocate Kenny Oldwage and attorney Brian Webber – has been representing him free of charge for at least the past two months. A source close to the Pistorius family said his legal bill now stands at R17.5 million, and about R10 million is still outstanding. During his closing arguments before Pistorius’ sentencing this week, Roux told the North Gauteng High Court and Judge Thokozile Masipa that his client ...
JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Prosecutors in the Oscar Pistorius case said Monday they will file appeal papers in the next few days against the verdict and sentence after the Olympic runner was convicted of culpable homicide and given a five-year prison term for killing his girlfriend.

LESSON FROM OSCAR PISTORIUS' FALL FROM GRACE. "What has happened to this Man? He was on the rise, he was an icon, he was making lot of money...but since the killing of his girlfriend he has not earned a penny. He has no sponsors. He turned from hero to villain. It's a classical case of falling from grace to grass, a case of a man who is down and out. He's not only broken, he's broke. There is nothing left of this man. But we all know it's far worse than that". These were the words of Barry Roux, Oscar Pistorius' defence councel, pleading for a high court judge to temper justice with mercy. Did the judge show mercy on the Paralympian? Well, perhaps. She gave him five years jail term. But he, Pistorius was the achitect of his downfall. It was he who pulled the trigger; it was he who fired four lethal bullets that killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, 29 years-old Law graduate and model,on that lovers' night of February 14, 2013. Born without fibulas, Oscar Pistorius got his lower legs amputated a month b ...
The following by Irvine Green - is a bit long but if you read to end makes very good points. . . The Oscar Pistorius trial has come and gone, and I THINK (emphasis intentional) the sentence was fair under the circumstances. Yet I believe he should NOT have got a sentence anywhere near that which he did - and in fact ONLY a fine for the dangerous discharge of a firearm in a public place (the restaurant, and even in this aspect remember that he was HANDED a firearm that was 'one up ' was not HIS firearm and it wasn't HIM who brought it into a public place, in a loaded form and he ALSO HAD NOT ASKED his friend to bring a firearm to show him). PLUS... I think the judge missed something overwhelmingly important (unfortunately it was not brought up in evidence or cross-examination - or in mitigation of sentence). Read on... It is MY belief that IF Oscar Pistorius had been living in ANY OTHER country, while assuming the rest of his life had been the same, ie Paraplegic etc) , what happened regarding th ...

No parent should have to bury their child. I am not limiting your freedom to speech, I am not asking you to not post whatever you want on FB, I strongly advocate free speech. I just am asking you to please respect my feelings and not directly message with these jokes such that I cannot choose to ignore them. Thank you.
The irony is Oscar Pistorius will wake up to a burglar actually using his toilet,

How backwards is the world? Is it "too soon"? The only people that should be in hot water is the guy who thought 10 months in prison is acceptable for someone who murders his own wife.

An opportunity for forgiveness and compassion. My heart-felt condolences to Reeva Steenkamp and her beloved family, I hope they find closure and healing in the misdt of this cloudy media-infested loss. My compassion goes to Oscar Pistorius and his family. They also lost a son, in a way. No family is ever prepared for something like this. As for Oscar, one might say he deserves a harsher sentence, maybe true, but I believe he also deserves compassion and forgiveness whatever sentence he 'finally' get. As a Christian, I believe in gracious justice, and everybody deserves grace no matter who they are or what they've done, WE ALL NEED GOD'S GRACE, MERCY AND COMPASSION - daily! I hope and pray that Oscar will be properly rehabilitated and I hope he finds his peace and solace in Jesus. The severity of Manasseh's imprisonment brought him to repentance. David repented.

“Oscar cried himself to sleep in prison.” – SAPA The newspapers don’t have a clue about what people are actually interested in hearing about. Who actually wants to hear about what happens in the life of rich spoilt Westerners like Oscar Pistorius? I would much rather hear about news that is relevant to ordinary people like myself, such as that a cure has been found for AIDS, or that progress has been made in reducing the mortality rate in Africa. There’s so much boring “news” that gets published in our newspapers every day, it’s a wonder people spend money buying our papers. Stay ignorant. What’s the worst that can happen to you? You can die. But if you’ve accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour, you’ll go to heaven. So, what’s the problem then?

Oscar Pistorius gets five years for killing Reeva Steenkamp *
JAIL NO GOOD O.Oscar Pistorius' jaile: Rife with AIDS, gangsters, stabbings and gang rape, Oscar Pistorius’s brutal new home - Kgosi Mampuru II prison – Indeed, the jail, where the pampered athlete is today beginning a five-year sentence for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, , is one of the most feared in South Africa. The concrete fortress in Pretoria, which became notorious as the main hanging site during the Apartheid era, houses 7,000 of the country’s most violent criminals. The vast majority of inmates are black and from impoverished backgrounds – and, unlike Pistorius, who relies on two prosthetic legs, very few are disabled. So, what exactly can Pistorius, a rich white man who became one of the wealthiest sports stars on earth following a privileged childhood, expect? MONEY TALKS: However, report says he is to be held in a specially prepared part of securely-guarded prison section with only six cells. If so, his only neighbour would be Czech fugitive Radovan Krejčíř.
My letter published in today's London Evening Standard... 'Yesterday in South Africa a man was sentenced by a Judge to serve a sentence that is predicted to amount to around 10 months in prison followed by Community Service. Was his crime a minor burglary or persistent shop-lifting? Nope. He killed a woman. Reeva Steenkamp was shot dead by her boyfriend Oscar Pistorius on Valentine's Day in 2013. Statistically speaking, Steenkamp was one of three women killed by an intimate partner on Valentine's Day in the country. According to a report (by Lydia Smith , International Business Times Sept 11 2014) the day after Reeva Steenkamp was killed, she was due to wear black in a "Black Friday" protest against South Africa's high number of rapes. The event was spurred by the gang rape and murder of a 17-year-old girl, who managed to identify her attacker, her ex-boyfriend, shortly before she died. In South Africa, a woman is killed by domestic violence on average every eight hours. The rate of women killed in South ...

BREAKING NEWS!!! Olympian and great man Oscar Pistorius is sentenced to 5 years in prison as a result of brutally murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. I can sleep well at night knowing that a murdered is walking free at night.
While I'm on the media naming and shaming bandwagon today, I hope that Masipa and her assessors take a day to review the appallingly misleading and out-and-out false reporting of the Oscar Pistorius case from start to (please!) finish. Since it's what created the societal need for retribution in lieu of ubuntu and fed the misconception that Oscar murdered Reeva and knew she was behind the door, it's worth taking time before she ever again publicly embraces public opinion as a determinant. Or praises Gerrie Nel. Or absolves the NPA and SAPS and the media.
He is an amazing Prosecutor and did a wonderful job with Oscar Pistorius, he saw right thru him from day one and gave him exactly what he deserved. Unfortunately in my opinion the Justice system failed him. He is just man and is quite prepared to put the blame where it belongs, he is strong and believes in what he is doing. Just a great pity Oscar did not get what he deserves. ( and that was not due to the lack of trying. If it was me I would appeal the sentence, but then it won't help because all the relevant people have already been paid off. Put the Justice back into this society Gerry!!! they need people like you.

Oscar Trial: from Paralympian to prisoner Pretoria – Oscar Pistorius will on Tuesday begin serving the five-year prison sentence he has been given for shooting model Reeva Steenkamp. Before noon on Tuesday he became an inmate under the Department of Correctional Services, and was no longer a global sporting icon with prospects of immediately resuming his athletic career. Criminal law expert Ulrich Roux confirmed that this effectively means that Pistorius could be released within 10 months, after which time he would serve the remainder of his sentence under correctional supervision or house arrest. There were few shows of emotion in the North Gauteng High Court room where cameras captured the solemn faces of Steenkamp’s parents June and Barry, the Pistorius family and Pistorius himself. A short while later Pistorius was led away by officials so that he could be transferred to a correctional facility – widely reported to be the Kgosi Mampuru Prison in Pretoria, where he will be accommodated in the *** ...

Oscar Pistorius trial: Athletes sole aim was to kill, court told - Sydney Morning Herald
Xolile Mgeni was denied medical parole because the Correctional Facility he was held at had the best medical facilities than what he could have had outside prison. He died in prison today. Oscar Pistorius can't be sent to jail, for South African Correctional Services has no facilities for a prisoner with no legs. This was argued in court last week. Facilities are best for a black prisoner with a brain tumor but there are no facilities, countrywide, for a white prisoner with no legs...
Xolile Mngeni may your soul rest in peace. Thou may not speak ill of the dead as I am tempted to go into reasons why ended up in jail. The point is that is done and dusted. You received punishment harsh or not. I shall let that to rest. I hope your death shall not be in vain. I sincerely hope that your death is timed well such that it exposes the inequality that is appalling within the Justice System in our own land. I hope your death does raise conscious in the Justice System that the poor are not afforded same opportunities. It is sad that you were not afforded the opportunity to be with your family at the time when you needed them most. No matter how conditions were at home. Speak of restoration and Ubuntu in the Justice System. Mercy is only for rich people, and that defies the whole purpose of the concept of Ubuntu and mercy, if class and race is the determining factor in this case. I still maintain that Judges then were not and today are not independent. How do you put someone in prison who ...
