Twitter reacts to Oscar Pistorius’s release

Pistorius’s lawyer Brian Webber told The Citizennewspaper that his client was home just after 22:00 on Monday, having been reportedly been release around 20:00.

Most media houses and the public only expected the track star’s release from Kgosi Mampuru II prison on Tuesday, as was decided by the Department of Correctional Services last week.

However, it appears Pistorius’s early release was planned by senior management, catching everyone, including the media, unawares.
