MIDRAND – Carl and Aimee Pistorius – siblings of embattled Paralympian Oscar Pistorius – have spoken out on the eve of their brother’s sentencing.
Speaking at Bag End Guest House in Midrand, outside Johannesburg – an upmarket venue owned by one of their relatives – the two granted three exclusive media interviews, with eNCA being the only South African media to speak to the pair.
Describing how she feels with just hours to go before Pistorius is scheduled to hear what punishment Judge Thokozile Masipa is going to hand her brother, Aimee Pistorius said 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 said.
Carl Pistorius echoed her sentiments.
“Obviously we can&39;t speculate on what the outcome will be tomorrow. But it has been a taxing 20 months. The last seven months have been very difficult and tomorrow will be very difficult. This is a weight we all have to carry.”
