Reeva's mom June Steenkamp to tell all on Carte Blanche

2014-11-30 09:00


June Steenkamp will be interviewed on Carte Blanche on Sunday evening.

TV with Thinus revealed that June, who is Reeva Steenkamp's mother, told the show's Devi Sankaree Govender: "I don't feel anything, he [Oscar Pistorius] is not anything to me. I feel angry for what he's done to her. It is my child. I gave birth to her."

The blog is reporting that on the episode, June takes the show inside her home in Port Elizabeth, where she shares her intimate thoughts on life without Reeva. The model was shot and killed by her boyfriend Oscar on 14 February 2014. Oscar is currently serving a five-year jail sentence at the Kgosi Mampuru prison in Pretoria. June will also open up about her financial troubles and the connection she still feels with her daughter.

June has also released her own book titled Reeva: A Mother's Story. In the book, June says she doesn't believe Oscar's story. "Not one of his actions suggests he felt protective towards her," the mother wrote.

She continued: "They had a fight, a horrible argument, and she fled to the bathroom with her mobile and locked the door. I think he may have shot once and then he had to go on and kill her because she would have been able to tell the world what really happened, what he is really like. There is no doubt in our minds: She had decided to leave Oscar that night."

She also wrote that she believes Oscar and Reeva's relationship was coming to an end. "In her heart of hearts she didn't think it was making either of them happy."
