  1. We moved to the UK to avoid the crime. While living in a ‘secure’ suburb in Johannesburg we experienced many an incident with regards safety, burglary etc. Our children were victims of hijacking attempts as well. They left SA before us.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with both families at this difficult sad time. Especially Oscar as he will carry the emotional scars for the rest of his life.

  2. Thoughts and prayers are with both families involved. Three years ago my family and I relocated back to London after so many security incidents, as mentioned above. My son became terrified to go out and asked why didn’t we carry a firearm. That was when we knew it was time to move back.
    My thoughts and prayers are with Ms Steenkamp’s family, and with Pistorius as well; I can’t imagine how difficult this will be over the coming months for all parties.

  3. First our condolences to the family and friends of Reeva Steenkamp for their loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with both families at this time. They will both carry the burden of knowing what happened and how this event changed their lives as well as Oscar’s.We can’t imagine how an ordeal like this will affect them and will continue to pray for strength, safety, faith and peace.
