Oscar Pistorius was photographed kayaking with a friend in Hermanus, in the Western Cape, Beeld reported on Tuesday. Pistorius was scheduled to appear in court on August 19, when he would stand trial for shooting and killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in February this year.

According to the paralympic athlete's uncle Arnold Pistorius, Oscar "just had to take a break from the jail he's living in" over the weekend.

Since the controversial athlete was arrested for Steenkamp's death, he had been living at his uncle's Pretoria home.

"To my knowledge it's the first time Ozzie has left Gauteng for any period of time," Arnold Pistorius told Beeld.

He explained that Oscar was in Hermanus to visit a family friend's mother, who was terminally ill, and said he also planned to visit Cape Town for a few days before returning to Pretoria for his court appearance.
