What's at stake in the Reeva Steenkamp murder trial?

Thursday, 18 April, 2013 - 18:00

Join WiSER for a discussion between:

best-selling authorAnthony Altbeker


the Director of WiSER, Sarah Nuttall

They will be talking about how we might read the Oscar Pistorius case in light of the trial of Fred van der Vyver:

How do the two dead women at the centre of these cases - Reeva Steenkamp and Inge Lotz  - figure in the public imagination?

What are we to make of the failures and fabrications of police evidence in contemporary South Africa?

What might the Pistorius trial reveal about the capacity of South African institutions to hold police and criminals accountable?

Anthony Altbeker has been following the Pistorius story closely and will venture his sense of what’s at stake in the forthcoming trial.
