It's judgement day for Oscar Pistorius

2014-09-11 08:00


The Blade Runner is back in court today as judgement proceedings get underway.

All eyes will be on Judge Thokozile Masipa  as she hands down the much-anticipated verdict.

Oscar has reportedly been under immense strain in the lead up to this day, and even had an emotional tantrum when approached by journalists earlier this week.

Meanwhile, Reeva Steenkamp's family just want proceedings to be over. Reeva's uncle, Michael Steenkamp told Eyewitness News that the family will be in court today to support Reeva's parents, June and Barry.

"We will all be there to see what is going to happen. Whichever way it goes, the Lord knows exactly what the answer is," he told the station.

He added that the family was very anxious and just want this period to end.

It's also been reported that Carl Pistorius may not be at his brother's side today. Spokesperson Annelies Burgess explained that Carl had to get special permission from doctors to attend proceedings.

Carl is reportedly still undergoing physical treatment in hospital after being involved in a car crash last month.
