UPDATE: Who would have thought that this SARIE cover with Oscar Pistorius and his sister Aimee, would become such a big talking point as well, and all for the wrong reasons. Oscar is currently being accused of shooting his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on 14 February 2013. The photo shoot itself is really a stunning of these two siblings, and the behind-the-scenes video below shows that Aimee really does see Oscar as a hero. Once you read the interview with both of them, it’s interesting how you read the answers in a completely different light after what Oscar is being accused of. The Afrikaans question and answer below is what stood out of for me.
I’m sure that there will be a few more magazines that have already gone to print with interviews or features on Oscar Pistorius, before all of this happened, so it will be interesting to keep an eye on what he said, and how it was covered.
The new March 2013 of SARIE will be going on-shelf on 18 February 2013. If you missed it, and really want to read the full interview, you can buy the digital copy here for only R31.
UPDATE: This section below was brought up in court to show that Oscar actually has a house in Gemona, Italy, which he didn’t declare earlier. You can read it word for word here. Hopefully he was quoted correctly. Maybe it could be interpreted that he just has a temporary house that regularly stays at. A specific house that he always rents, and doesn’t own…
