'Blade Runner' on Trial: Oscar Pistorius Case Consumes South Africa

A South African pastor has said that Satan made Oscar Pistorius kill his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day last year, adding that the Paralympian is not to blame for the murder.

Pistorius is accused of having murdered Steenkamp when he shot her dead through a locked bathroom door in his Pretoria home although he has denied guilt, saying he mistook her for an intruder.

According to Sport24, Reverend Isaac Malaza, who was waiting outside the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria where Pistorius is currently on trial, said that he is praying to God to help Pistorius as the Blade Runner was forced by Satan to kill Steenkamp.

Malaza further said that Pistorius should not do ‘something like this’ again that breaks the hearts of his family, adding that Steenkamp’s parents and family were also left heartbroken.

Malaza also said that Pistorius is one of the many men that kill women, adding that he wants God to stay in the hearts of men so they can ‘like their women and not kill them’.
