Johannesburg - Paralympian Oscar Pistorius will have his parole reviewed in three weeks' time, according to a report on Thursday.

Broadcaster eNCA tweeted that the paralympian could be out of prison soon.

"Another three weeks in jail for #OscarPistorius - his parole review set down for Friday 18 September @eNCA," tweeted journalist Karyn Maughan.

Pistorius, convicted of culpable homicide for gunning down his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day in 2013, was supposed to have been released on correctional supervision last Friday.

But the day before his release, the justice minister announced it would be put on hold because the correct processes were not followed.
