Pistorius 'partied less than two months after Steenkamp's death'

Paralympian murder-accused Oscar Pistorius partied less than two months after he shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, the Sunday Times reported.

A businessman, who asked not to be named, told the newspaper that Pistorius had arrived uninvited at a party that the businessman was hosting in Illovo, Johannesburg, on April 6 last year.

Pistorius is currently on trial, charged with murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, whom he shot dead through a locked toilet door at his Pretoria home on Valentine's Day last year. Pistorius has claimed that he shot Steenkamp by mistake after believing there was an intruder in his house.

On Sunday, the newspaper quoted unnamed sources, reportedly guests at the party in April, who said that, at the event, Pistorius had appeared subdued at first, but after drinking heavily, had taken to the dance floor as well as tried to flirt with a woman - who rejected him.

Recently, reports emerged that Pistorius had been involved in an altercation with businessman Jared Mortimer at an upmarket club, the VIP Room, in Sandton, Johannesburg, last Saturday night.

Mortimer told The Star newspaper that Pistorius had been intoxicated at the time and had insulted President Jacob Zuma.

Subsequently, Pistorius's uncle, Leo Pistorius, released a statement, on behalf of the family, in which he said that the athlete's move to venture into a public space while the trial was under way had been unwise.

He said the family had witnessed Pistorius's "escalating sense of loneliness and alienation. This, we believe, is underlying some of his self-harming behaviour."

Leo Pistorius also refuted Mortimer's version of events, saying the businessman had been the "aggressor" in the incident and was "peddling untruths".

Pistorius's murder trial is set to resume on August 7, when final arguments are expected to be heard.

What I cannot understand is why he is walking around with a gun! Saw him in a restaurant and was horrified to see a firearm attached to his belt.

MC, I'm not surprised that he would still walk around armed...he's an arrogant, self-centered little pr!ck. I'm amazed though that he's still allowed to carry firearms.

I thought it would be common sense to have no firearms as a basic condition of his bail. I'd also think it would be common sense to not walk around with a firearm after shooting your girlfriend .... apparently common sense isn't that common!

I don't know. It doesn't make sense. After everything that has happened, he would never walk around in public with a firearm, visible for everyone to see. Maybe you saw someone that looks like him, because OP won't touch another firearm in he's life again. I don't think so./

I'll take a photo next time. In the mean time, I'll ask the people who I was with if any of them got a snapshot of it. Or will you claim that was fake? Anyhow, it was Pistorius and it was DEFINITELY a firearm on his hip

Do you know that, it's against the law for anyone to show their firearm on their hip, only the police are allowed. Maybe it was a pouch or something. Where you wearing your glasses dear ???

It was in a holster which was visible when he took his jacket off. It is not against the law to have a firearm showing, providing that it is in a clipped holster.

amazing that during the trial more than a year after the killing his lawyers and doctors claimed he was suffering from PTSD and he was crying like a little girl, vomiting, the extent that the judge had to halt proceedings many times to allow him to compose himself, and yet only just after 2 months after he killed reeva he was out partying, getting drunk and making moves on women! what a degenerate scumbag he is!
