Reeva Steenkamp’s cousin reveals to court that she did not see the existence of love between Oscar Pistorious and Reeva
Kim Martin, a cousin of Reeva Steenkamp has disclosed that though her cousin was happy and caring towards Oscar, she did not view their relationship as a lovable one. This confession made the court give the South African Olympic athlete’s judgment a rethink after he was convicted of murdering his ex-girlfriend Ms Steenkamp. Oscar was to serve 15years in jail but he may serve for a lesser time due to time already spent in prison and for other reasons.
Ms Martin said she did not believe the true version of events had come out.
“I never heard him apologize… I don’t feel the true version came out. We just wanted the truth,” she said.
Martin was the last witness for the prosecution at the hearing, which began in Pretoria’s High Court on Monday and is expected to conclude by the end of the week. Pistorius’ lawyer, Barry Roux, asked her about the couple’s loving relationship. Ms Steenkamp, a model and law graduate, was excited and fond of Pistorius, “but I couldn’t see love”, she said.
