June Steenkamp is reportedly launching her book “Reeva – A Mother’s Story” in Port Elizabeth this week.
The lawyers of Paralympian Oscar Pistorius have filed papers opposing the state’s application to appeal his culpable homicide conviction and sentence.
Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir and paralympian Oscar Pistorius have trained together at the Kgosi Mampuru Prison in Pretoria.
The Oscar Pistorius case is one of several gender-based violence and femicide cases that resulted in the male perpetrator receiving a meagre punishment while the female victim got the maximum punishment.
The department of correctional services has dismissed reports that convicted Paralympian Oscar Pistorius would not be eligible for correctional supervision because an electronic monitoring device cannot be fitted to his ankle.
Reeva Steenkamp’s mother does not believe Oscar Pistorius accidentally killed her daughter and feels “let down” by the justice system, according to her memoir.
An application for leave to appeal against Paralympian Oscar Pistorius’ culpable homicide conviction and sentence will be heard in the North Gauteng High Court on December 9.
Prison authorities are doing their utmost to ensure Oscar Pistorius is well cared for in jail, and are even building him his own bath.
Oscar Pistorius’ lawyers have today formally opposed an appeal by the state against the athlete’s culpable homicide verdict and five-year jail sentence handed down last month.
The five-year jail sentence imposed on paralympian Oscar Pistorius is “shockingly light and inappropriate”, the State says in court papers filed today.
The state has filed its appeal against Paralympian Oscar Pistorius’ conviction and sentence, the National Prosecuting Authority said.
With reports that Oscar Pistorius still owes his lawyers in the region of R10 million, there is little certainty that his high-powered legal team will be on board for the state’s appeal.
The law must take its course regarding the state’s intention to appeal the conviction and sentencing of paralympian Oscar Pistorius, his family said.
The State will appeal paralympian Oscar Pistorius’ conviction of culpable homicide and the sentence he received, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.
There you have it. Oscar will probably be out of jail before his next cellphone upgrade. In fact, he might already be out.

Wednesday. I’m hungry. I’m thinking about Doctor Hunter S Thomson.
The silence is about protecting white male privilege, which is under scrutiny in South Africa’s university system.
The ANC has lost moral authority. The public, even its voting public, no longer believes the party will do the right thing.
