Oscar's uncle, Arnold, has just addressed media at the court.

Oscar has been staying with his uncle for the past 18 months.

Arnold first thanked Judge Masipa for her ruling. "We would really like to show how deeply grateful we are to Judge Masipa that she found him not guilty of murder"

He went on to add that the family had never doubted Oscar's version of events.  He said that while the family would not be making any more comments until sentencing, the family are 'deeply affected' by what has happened.

"We are deeply affected by the devastating tragic events - and it won't bring Reeva back but our hearts go out to her family"

Meanwhile, as reported exclusively by The Juice, the Myers, whom Reeva stayed with in Joburg for several months before she was killed, have said that they are disappointed with the verdict. "We will forever be heartbroken. The fact remains that Reeva is gone."
