It’s a tragic story no one saw coming. Oscar Pistorius shoots girlfriend – was a chilling headline we woke up to this morning. The Twoise…
I am not the one to go on and on forever about V what what day but shame, that tweet by Oscar Pistorius’s now late girlfriend about Valentine’s Day casts spotlight on how some of us take life for granted.
Since Twitter is abuzz with the Oscar news internationally and he is currently trending on the number 1 spot, I figured you lot have a lot to express. You have all read the story and have googled as much as you can about the matter. If you haven’t, well, where have yo been? Here is a short teaser: Oscar Pistorius allegedly shot dead his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp claiming he mistook her for a bugler prompting international headlines to cast their spotlight on Oscar and crime rate in SA.
A lot has been said on Twitter from people saying the whole thing just goes to show we live in fear in our own homes due to alarming crime rate while folks like Kuli Roberts “innocently” tweet people will blame crime levels to cover up their own crimes.
At the time of her death, Reeva had already completed filming Tropkia Island of Treasure season 5 due to debut on SABC on Saturday 16 February. The news threw producer of the show off the curve ball.
Oscar was exposed in the Sunday Times last year as a womaniser and Adrian Basson – a City Press journalist and author of Zuma Exposed, this morning tweeted that in 2009, the NPA did not prosecute Oscar for alleged domestic violence charges. The police say they will oppose Oscar’s bail application during his 14:00 court appearance today on the alleged “murder”. He was detained this morning.
Since this is Oscars’ time, royal comedian Trevor Noah Tweeted: “And the Oscar goes to – jail” prompting tweeps and tweleps to tell him where to get off.Mnet keep their word tweet
M-Net tweeted they have cancelled a whole campaign they filmed with Oscar out of respect of Reeva’s bereaved family.
Some tweeps tweeted: “14 February should now be called Oscarantine”.
Meanwhile, the State of the Nation Address 2013 is overshadowed by the Oscar and Reeva tragic news.
Obviously everyone has a lot to say about this issue, I think it will be better to let the law run its course as the truth will hopefully come to the fore.
