Reeva Steenkamp’s mother has delivered the speech her daughter had planned to give at a South African school on the day she was killed by Oscar Pistorius.

June Steenkamp went back to Reeva’s old high school in their home town of Port Elizabeth to talk to students.

She said: “I will now carry on where she left off,” before reading excerpts of the speech Reeva Steenkamp planned to give at a Johannesburg school on Valentine’s Day 2013.

Pistorius fatally shot his girlfriend in the early hours of that day. The Olympic athlete was released from jail on Monday and moved to house arrest after serving a year of his five-year manslaughter sentence.

Responding to students’ questions, June Steenkamp said of Pistorius: “I’ve got no feelings of revenge.”
