Convicted Murderer Oscar Pistorius Has Met With Reeva Steenkamp's Family; This Is Why


South Africa has been dealing with a serious pandemic of Gender-Based Violence where many women are being abused by their partners. Some have left their relationships whilst others did not make it out alive.

This is why the country has been raising awareness against Gender-Based Violence and helping thousands of abused women, encouraging them to report abuse crimes.

Convicted murderer Oscar Pistorius made the headlines 9 years ago when he was accused of killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. This left many people wondering how safe going to the bathroom at home is after an intense argument with an abusive partner. It was a spine-chilling realization.

According to eNCA, Pistorius has met with his victim's family as part of an Offender-Victim Dialogue and has hoped for an early release from prison. He has also been transferred back to prison in Attridgeville after he was moved to a prison in Gqeberha last year.


One can only hope that Pistorius has been rehabilitated. Reeva's family also deserves healing and closure after their daughter's life was cut shot. Nothing will ever make up for the loss of their child. Whether Pistorius gets parole or not, he still has his life to live, in or out of prison.
