Oscar Pistorius set to be released this week
Pistorius will swap a cold-walled hail cell for his uncle Arnold’s plush mansion in the Waterkloof area.
The athlete was sentenced to five years in prison for culpable homicide, but may be released under correctional supervision after serving a sixth of his sentence.
Pistorius shot and killed Steenkamp on Valentine's Day two years ago.
He claimed he thought she was an intruder.
WATCH: Judge Tokozile Masipa hands down judgment in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial.
Pistorius will swap a cold-walled hail cell for his uncle Arnold's plush mansion in the Waterkloof area.
While he will no longer be confined to a prison, he will be subject to strict conditions and monitored by a parole officer.
It's understood Pistorius may only leave the mansion to go to church, and must be accompanied when doing so.
Steenkamp's parents issued a statement at the time saying, incarceration of 10 months for taking a life is simply not enough.
