Oscar Pistorius

Brother talks about life in prison

2 Dec, 2014

Carl Pistorius says Pistorius is not receiving special treatment in Kgosi Mampuru II jail despite his disability. He does not have a personal bathroom but has been given a stool to shower on in the communal bathroom, and is confined to his cell for 17 hours a day and not allowed to come and go as he pleases, but has created relationships with other prisoners and wants to start a basketball program. Carl Pistorius:

He often gives fellow prisoners in the hospital wing, mostly recovering from tuberculosis, advice on how to exercise and to strengthen their bodies… He’s encountering many beautiful stories from prisoners. There are people there who have committed crimes but whose lives have changed.
