Background

It was back in 2014 when Oscar Pistorius made the news and shocked many South Africans after killing his girlfriend. He has been in prison for about 6 years now and everything has been quiet with regards to him but he is finally back in the news and the country is not happy about them.

Report

It was recently revealed by News 24 that Oscar Pistorius is now eligible for parole after six years that he served of his sentence. It was being reported that the family of his murdered girlfriend said that they are ready to meet with him as part of the process to getting parole. Below is what News24 had to say:

"In August, the SCA corrected its ruling on Oscar Pistorius’s 13 years and five-month murder sentence for a second time – so that it was antedated to 21 October 2014, the day he was first sentenced for culpable homicide by Judge Masipa.

That means he’s now eligible for parole,"

Many South Africans thought he still had a lot of time behind bars to serve before he actually will get parole. They were surprised by the fact that now he is almost free man after murdering someone.

Opinion

Many South Africans are crying white privilege as this thing it's something they are not used to. They are stating that if it wasn't a white person who was in prison for killing someone they would not even be seeing the opportunity for parole. How many South Africans complained in the comments section as to how is it that he is to get parole so quickly for a Murder when he still had more years to go.

What is your take on the matter at hand?
