'No love' between Reeva and Oscar‚ cousin tells court
Reeva Steenkamp’s cousin expressed her anger over an interview with convicted murderer Oscar Pistorius that is scheduled to air later this month.
Kim Martin was the first witness to be called by the state on Wednesday morning‚ the third day of the re-sentencing proceedings in the North Gauteng High Court.
She told prosecutor Gerrie Nel that the she didn’t believe Pistorius gave the “true version” of the events that led to Steenkamp’s shooting and killing on February 14‚ 2013.
In reference to a much-hyped interview to broadcast by iTV‚ Martin said that it is “unfair to tell the world of your version when you had chance to do so in court”.
“All we ever wanted was the truth‚” Martin testified.
Under cross-examination by Pistorius’ lawyer Barry Roux‚ Martin said there was a fondness between the couple‚ “but not love”.
