Unfortunate way for the Rainbow Nation to get notoriety. But yet no one is talking to the crime rate in South Africa and reasons why someone would be so scared and possibly react in such a way. Certainly in North America it is not relate able.

PR drive pumps positive spin to website

JOHANNESBURG: Oscar Pistoriusís official website has had a massive revamp in a few days.

This is thanks to a PR drive his team launched after he was accused of killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Pistoriusís family has taken a decision to devote his official website to the latest news about developments as well as messages of support. The website is also open to Pistoriusís fans from all over the world who have been posting messages of support and Bible verses, wishing him luck and praying for him.

It also contains a copy of the affidavit read by his lawyer in court on Tuesday, explaining events that he said led to the shooting of Steenkamp.

What is missing, however, are all the logos of his sponsors. This time last week, when one clicked on the logos of sponsors such as Nike, the page would open to an article. Today, those logos have been removed from the website after his sponsors dropped him.

The website has a different picture gallery, media articles and messages of support, among others. Despite a huge interest in the Pistorius story worldwide, there were only four articles under ďmedia articlesĒ yesterday afternoon.

[Blunderov] No way is it legal in South Africa (or I suspect, anywhere else- even the USA) to open fire on a closed door no matter who you may think is behind it. Somehow it escaped his attention that his girlfriend was no longer in the bed beside him? This seems somewhat implausible to me. But not to pre-judge the matter. The court will decide.
