Carl and Aimee says they 'never doubted' their brother the Paralympian's account of Reeva Steenkamp's murder.

Carl and Aimee, who have been in court throughout the long-running trial, gave three exclusive media interviews, including eNCA.

The pair describing how they are feeling just hours to before Pistorius appear before Judge Thokozile Masipa.

Aimee told eNCA, that she was feeling a lot of anxiety.

“It has been a long journey to this point. A very taxing one. It is difficult to support someone through something like this – all the guilt and ridicule and obviously the exposure that has come with it. The heartache for my brother, the family and of course the Steenkamps,” she told eNCA.

Meanwhile after a seven-month trial, Oscar will be sentenced on Tuesday in the High Court in Pretoria for the death of his model and law-graduate girlfriend Reeva.

Judge Masipa is expected to hand down her sentence at 9.30am, after finding him guilty last month of culpable homicide.

On Monday, the correctional services department denied reports that it had already prepared a cell for Pistorius at the Kgosi Mampuru II prison.

“Any insinuation that the department has prepared a cell to incarcerate anyone who has not yet been sentenced to a jail term is both malicious and irresponsible,” spokesman Mthunzi Mhaga said.
