  • Community work may include sweeping outside museums in South Africa
  • Pistorius, 28, was freed on October 19 after less than a year behind bars
  • He is serving rest of four-year term for 2013 shooting under house arrest
Daily Mail UK, 14 November 2015


He was controversially released from jail last month and moved to house arrest.
And this morning, Oscar Pistorius was spotted reporting for community service in South Africa.
Donning a black baseball cap and sunglasses, the shamed sprinter kept his eyes on the ground as he arrived at Garsfontein police station in the country's capital, Pretoria, to carry out his service.

It was the first public sighting of the 28-year-old double amputee since his release on October 19.

Pistorius is currently serving a five-year sentence for shooting dead girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013. He had spent less than a year in jail when he was released and placed under house arrest.

For the remaining four years of his sentence, he can only leave home for specific reasons, such as to attend church or to carry out the community service tasks he has been ordered to do.

These tasks may include sweeping outside museums and cleaning hospitals.
Pistorius is residing at his uncle's mansion in the eastern suburbs of Pretoria.

Although he was acquitted of murder at trial last year - and instead, convicted of culpable homicide for the deadly shooting on Valentine's Day in 2013 - he is facing a second legal challenge.
Prosecutors argued at the Supreme Court on November 3 that he should be found guilty of murder.

At the appeal, Pistorius's lawyer was grilled by a panel of judges over the Olympic athlete's actions on the night he shot Steenkamp, a model and law graduate, through the locked door of his toilet.

Pistorius claimed in court he believed his girlfriend was an intruder. However, prosecutors argued that the judge at the sprinter's murder trial made errors when she acquitted him of murder.

The panel of five Supreme Court judges has the power to upgrade Pistorius's culpable homicide conviction to murder, which would mean the runner faces a 15-year jail sentence.

The Supreme Court, which can also order a retrial or rule that Pistorius' manslaughter conviction was correct, is expected to give its judgment at the end of this month.


Earlier this week, a picture of Pistorius emerged showing him posing for a 'selfie' with his rugby player friend Brett Sharman, apparently during a recent evening reunion at his uncle's home.

Sharman, 28, quickly deleted the picture - which also showed Pistorius looking gaunt and carried the hashtag #WeekendVibes! - from his Twitter account after it provoked criticism on social media.

He later denied the selfie was new - but declined to say when it had been taken.
'It was a stupid thing to do', he told South Africa's You magazine.

Sharman and Pistorius have been friends since they were at high school together.
Pistorius was best man at Sharman’s wedding to dancer Simone Krause in October 2014 - just a month before he was sentenced to five years in prison for Steenkamp's manslaughter.

Photos had previously emerged of the runner looking happy and relaxed at the wedding, which took place after he had been convicted of his girlfriend's killing.
