Oscar Pistorius selling home where he shot and killed his girlfriend

Oscar Pistorius's lawyer revealed today that the paralympian is planning to sell the house in which he killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, to enable him raise money for his legal fees which has been rapidly increasing since the commencement of his trial.

Reports say with all advertising deals closed up and none in sight, Oscar has been grappling with raising money to pay his legal team. He has since been selling off some of his other properties and some of his racehorses.
A statement on his official website confirmed he is selling the house
"It has become necessary to sell Mr. Pistorius’ home in the Silver Woods Country Estate in Pretoria in order for him to raise the necessary funds to cover his increasing legal costs. This is due to the unexpected extension of the trial beyond the initial three weeks period for which it was originally set down".

Even if he didn't need it to pay his legal bills, he'd have sold it eventually because of what happened there. Bad memories.

He should sell the luxury wristwatches first. Or better still, forget about this whole thing and go to prison since he knows the truth, the whole truth. Later this man go write book about wetin happen dat day, then use the proceeds dey chop or keep for bank awaiting when e go free from prison.

Igor said...

I guess he does not want to suffer the psychology trauma of remembering what he did in that house.

hilary obiorah said...

Well he is sure to make some money from that, who wouldn't want to own a house where a famous murder happened? Just have to worry about it being haunted.

Angie said...

That report is quite incorrect; the house had been in the market for a while way before he killed Reeva.. It couldn't sell then; asking price was too much, wonder who will buy it now that its filled with horror drama. He pays his defence attorneys; Adv Roux n co. R50, 0000 per appearance. That will definitely affect his pocket but I'm sure he'll cope just fine; with investments home and abroad.

They'll probably auction it after the trial cos no one will touch the house in open market.

He pays his defence attorneys R50, 000, thts apprx. $5, 000 per appearance. I pity for the guy cos all evidence so far indicates that he might be telling the truth. Only God knows what really happened that morning.

He cannot sell. The house is exhibit. The Judge and Jury may want to visit the scene of crime. Prosecutor may find fresh evidence that may have been overlooked.

Anonymous said...

But who will buy it? In my language, they say a mad man is good to look at in the market, but no one is willing to claim him as their child. So, in as much as he's the flavour of the season, meaning people will want to go to the scene of the crime to take photos, I doubt anyone will want to buy that house with its history.

We are Africans and we are generally superstitious. What am I saying, even a white person will not willingly buy a house where murder was committed.

He should just pack it in and plead guilty by reason of momentary insanity cos the evidence is stacked against him

If only Reeva had continued practising as a lawyer, she wouldn't have met this douchebag. Seeing her parents aging so fast in just one year is heartbreaking to any parent, whilst the douchebag is busy looking for a pity party. For the past year he's been living in a 39 roomed house belonging to one of his uncles. He is nowhere near broke, he just lost the endorsements.His family owns almost 22 companies, including mining, farming and property leasing. The R50k daily fee for that lawyer is just a drop in the ocean. He is just mocking the poor. I just wish there was sum1 who had nothing to loose, who would just go to court and finish him off, bloody agent.

Oscar definitely killed Reeva, the evidence is there for anyone to see. He's cliaming intruder in other to reduce the sentence he's going to get. He will not be needing his house again as he's definitely heading ton jail. This is to show that there's judgement and punishment for all. The white people have to start believing in God. This guy was possessed by the evil spirit and instead of going for deliverance, he's being termed as fascinated by guns. Oscar owe up and let #Justice4Reeva prevail.

Cagey Berry said...

With the evidence so far, his act ψås intentional. Although i pity him, on the second thought, he has wasted a life. Am Just gonna stay aside and watch the final verdict. RIP to the deceased! Moral lesson, anger can be gotten over with, ßut murder ιƨ a price you must pay for if indulged in.

Why did he not call on God to help him control his anger when he shot his girlfriend. I feel for him and hope that no matter the outcome of the trial he is genuinely sorry for what he did and asks God for forgiveness.

$5000... He can't go broke bro; the guy's family are well endowed financially both at home and abroad.
God have mercy on him really, devil is real!
This case might end as manslaughter; thts what money does....you get the best legal team..

But he shaa needs a test of jail-life to change his lifestyle.

He was born without cartilage in his legs, so they had to amputate him when he was an infant. Your question though.

Apparently Reeva received a msg from a hunky rugby player and the swine got jealous and went into a rage and went beserk with the gun as usual.

You see my fellow 'anonymous' 9ja-rian!!..this is Where the problem lays....READ AND GET IGNORANT SELF ENLIGHTENED!!!....or in your lame words -'open brain'!!!.....
You see...when we fail to take responsibility for our own actions -and always cover up with the saying' Aghh....it's God nahh....'..it brings forth decadent thinking like yours...and unfortunately it's just the same with so many young ones out there. Fine- you might be a JS3 student in Lagos at the moment doing your thing- I get that..and all the hustles that go with it...but what we all - as youths- should be doing is facing reality....and stop idolising people already making something of their lives...and DO SOMETHING of your own!!...don't get me wrong by thinking they should not be admired- because they wouldn't be in the spotlight in the first place if they had not actually done something good for themselves....as opposed to just wishing yourself the same!!....GET YOUR THINKING CAPS ON AND DO SOMETHING AS WELL - these so called 'celebs' are just people like you as well!!!
See...I like BONA...he makes this place fun...(sometimes!!)...but i was a bit disappointed with his comment...'dats all'!!!.....
Before you comment next time- check the facts out a bit....Pistorious is NEVER going to be 'let loose' - he shot and killed someone - and justice will prevail. Knowingly or not- he did INTEND to kill another human- which is an indictable offence under every known law to mankind. What he actually is fighting for is a reduced sentence!!
There is a wise saying I would like to leave you all with - IT IS BETTER TO REMAIN QUIET AND BE THOUGHT A FOOL, THAN TO OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND REMOVE ALL DOUBT!!....
