Ya i know many of you are tired of hearing about the Oscar Pistorius case and plenty have kinda lost interest in the protracted live updates so i’m just gonna throw out this bit of important info that happened yesterday. It was reported yesterday morning on Eye Witness News HERE that the lead investigating officer, Hilton Botha, is himself facing 7 charges of attempted murder . Yes…feel free to let out a loud sigh.
Anyways….the state has decided that Botha may not be the best person to lead right now and have appointed the top detective in the SAPS, Lieutenant General Vinesh Moonoo, to take over.
Hopefully Moonoo doesn’t have any skeletons in his closet.
“National police commissioner Riah Phiyega seemed to suggest that Botha’s replacement had more to to with strengthening the police’s investigation than the charges hanging over his head.
“With the process of the bail application over, I, as the national commissioner of police, am appointing a new team to take the matter on a long haul and Lieutenant General Vineshkumar Moonoo is leading that team.” [News24]
And an update on what the defence teams and prosecutors said yesterday. There are plenty of live updates, but the CNN one is to the point and gives a great breakdown of what happened.

Today will see the rest of the prosecution closing argument and the decision from the judge on whether Pistorius should get bail or not.
