The mother of Oscar Pistorius’ late girfriend Reeva Steenkamp, June Steenkamp has said she doesn’t care what the outcome of the trial is as it won’t bring her mother back.
Mrs Steenkamp also admitted that she had been unable to take her eyes off him all through the trial period.
“I keep thinking, “let’s see how he’s taking this”. He has been very dramatic, the vomiting and crying.”
She added, “I think he’s just about keeping himself together. I don’t know whether he’s acting. Most of the time he’s on his cell phone or looking down at papers or writing notes.”
Pistorius will face further difficult questions today as his cross-examination continues.
The athlete says he shot Ms Steenkamp by mistake, thinking she was a dangerous intruder behind the door in his bathroom about to come out and attack him.
Prosecutors say he killed her intentionally, and Pistorius faces a possible prison term of 25 years to life if convicted of premeditated murder.
