Witnesses tell of Oscar’s love

2013-02-20 00:00

OSCAR Pistorius said Reeva Steenkamp could be “the one”.

This romantic sentiment was revealed in a statement by Sandton businessman Justin Divaris (39) that was read as part of Pistorius’s application for bail.

Advocate Barry Roux SC, for Pistorius, submitted several statements.

Divaris said he and Pistorius were mad about cars and were good friends. Pistorius was a humble man.

He knew Steenkamp well and had introduced her to Pistorius.

He said Pistorius and Steenkamp were in a serious relationship and Pistorius told him she could be “the one”.

Oscar did not invite any of his previous girlfriends with him on overseas trips, but did invite Steenkamp. They really cared for one another, Divaris said.

Roux read a statement by Divaris’s girlfriend, Samantha Greyvenstein, a friend of Steenkamp.

She stated that Steenkamp had described Pistorius as “amazing” and said she was happy with him.

A cousin of Pistorius stated that Pistorius and Steenkamp were shopping for homes together.

Roux also read from a statement by Alex Pilakoutas (22), who said Pistorius had described Steenkamp, who was older than him, as more mature than his previous girlfriends.

Pistorius and Steenkamp were comfortable together and he clearly loved her, Pilakoutas said.
