Oscar Pistorius siblings break their silence
Aimee and Carl Pistorius have spoken to American based news channel CNN.
JOHANNESBURG - Convicted killer Oscar Pistorius's siblings have spoken out ahead of his sentencing on Tuesday, saying not a single person linked to the athlete or Reeva Steenkamp has gone untouched by this tragedy.
Aimee and Carl Pistorius spoke to American news channel CNN.
Pistorius will be sentenced in the High Court in Pretoria where he was last month found guilty of culpable homicide for the Valentine's Day shooting of his girlfriend.
Aimee says although her brother will be sentenced, it will never be over.
"This changes our brother's life and our lives."
She told CNN's Robyn Curnow that her brother will forever bear the burden for being responsible for Steenkamp's death.
"This is something my brother will carry with him forever. Regardless of what's happening now, it's a journey that will never end."
Aimee and Carl say they can relate to Barry and June Steenkamp's anguish because they lost their mother at a young age.
Earlier on Monday it was revealed Pistorius has been allocated a cell in one of the most highly secured sections of Pretoria Central prison.
While the state wants him jailed for a decade, his defence has recommended house arrest and community service.
Eyewitness News understands prison bosses are taking no chances to ensure Pistorius's security is guaranteed.
He may be sharing a prison section with Radovan Krejcir on a floor guarded by the prison's special task force.
