Oscar Pistorius In CourtThe Oscar Pistorious  court trial is still ongoing.

You will recall that yesterday, Pistorious was found not guilty of premeditated murder.

Just moments ago,  the judge, Thokozile Masipa announced that Pistorious is guilty of manslaughter. He has also been found guilty of “discharging a pistol negligently in a public place,” but acquitted on two other firearms charges, Telegraph UK reports.

According to reports, the sentencing will probably will not take place today, and could take as long as two weeks before it is done.

We will provide updates on the case, as they become available.

      The maximum is actually 15 years. Sentencing will take place in a month’s time. He may get away with a fine or a suspended sentence at this rate.

    We all know if he was a black man, he would be charges and convicted of 1st degree murder and be given 25 to life without possibility or parole.

      charges?????? The verdict had nothing to do with whether he was black or not. Your thinking is so myopic, if you were smarter you’d keep quiet. Just saying……………… waka pass

      Just like people who say racism does not occur in US/UK, my response is “Keep telling yourself that”

      Dear chichi, racism is still very much around right in our face. Just that in this case he is not only white but he also have the money to get the right lawyers to prove his case.

    I think he’s someone with a very bad temper. Due to rage, he killed Reeva. If he doesn’t get the right justice now, the truth will be revealed one way or the other later.

    At this rate, the judge has angered a lot of people in SA. She can acquit him but, like O J Simpson, he will prove her wrong by killing someone else. Gerrie Nel did a wonderful. Job in showing us what a liar Oscar is. God will definately see Oscar. I just hope Reeva’s ghost gives him sleepless nights.

    God is our biggest judge……. no matter what we do or say and hire the most talented lawyers to twist around n win, God is watching and knows it all.
