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.
