She told Sky News after travelling to Bloemfontein in South Africa to support prosecutors who are demanding a re-trial: “He killed her and he’s been in jail for 11 months and it’s too short a time for taking someone’s life.”

“And even though I don’t want to hurt him in any way, he has to face the truth … it’s justice for Reeva.

“She lost her life, her career, having a child, her wedding and we lost her. It’s sending a bad message to the public, especially the women of South Africa, that 11 months is enough time for killing somebody.
