Oscar, trust, i don’t buy into your nugatory ballyhoo!

20 February 2013, 10:00
I have to say it has got to a point where I really don’t understand the mental capacity of the people of South Africa. To say that many are aimlessly trotting blinkered would be a much bigger insult to a horse; as it knows where it’s running to, half the time, albeit the leather patches glued to side of its head. Sadly, many South Africans are totally lost in a miasma of fantasies that will not only leave them disheartened and hurting, but they will never be able to find themselves, ever again.

To be honest, at one point I liked Oscar Pistorius. No, let me rephrase that. Up until last week, Oscar Pistorius was an inspiration to me, and I know to billions of people in and beyond the borders of South Africa. Why? Because he is one individual who defied many odds. He is a young man who brought a new meaning to what we used to call determination and perseverance. He broke boundaries, stereotypes and motivated many all over the globe, to live their dream and push themselves beyond limits.

But what he did to Reeva has crushed all his accomplishments so fast I even forgot what he used to be before that. All I see in him now is DEATH, plastered all across his forehead. What I feel is the same feeling I get when I look into the eyes of farm murderers, rapists, paedophiles, fraudsters and mafia gang leaders when they stand in the dock and lie to the world.

Anyone who thinks Oscar is not lying should take a deep breath, look long and hard at themselves in the mirror, and then find the nearest cliff and just jump off, and save the rest of the world the cheap talk and sympathy. South Africa is tired of being lied to, and Oscar is trying hard to cook the biggest of lie EVER. He killed his girlfriend, FACT, and there are no two ways about it. Even if he was intoxicated, he SHOT her 4 freaking times. I’m sorry, but 1 is a MISTAKE!

Jub Jub was also intoxicated, but I know for a fact he did not leave his home having planned to mow into a group of school kids, with the aim of killing four of them and declaring permanent disability on the other. Oscar took his time, took out his gun and shot the dear life out of Reeva, and that’s there for the world to see. To even dig into the intricate details that the forensics team have brought to light would be a waste of precious time.

All he can do is to dance to the music, because he has already set the tune and there is no turning back from this one.
People tend to immortalize celebrities, forgetting they are also human beings, who go to sleep at night and also take time to relieve themselves whenever the forces of nature call. To see them beyond that is to give them a ‘halo’ above their heads that they don’t deserve.

We are the same in this world, and thus should be treated the same. People are not born celebrities or public figures, but they are created by the people or the public themselves. Celebrity or not, when it comes to law and justice, not even a penny should be allowed to buy one out of the jaws of law.

I’m just tired of these sympathisers, and those busy prattling about the justice system and oh, he is ‘innocent until proven guilty’. Save us the empathy, and see reality for what it really is. Oscar murdered his girlfriend, finish and klaar. The rest doesn’t really matter, even if he killed her because they argued or because of a text message. That is nothing but a spectacle in an already defunct tragedy.

He is a murderer, the same as Jub Jub. But now I feel sad for Jub Jub, because, in all truthfulness, he did not intend to kill the school kids. That’s what we can call an accident.
