Nel: You said "Please don't tell anyone", why is that so important for you?
OP: I didn't want it to get to the media, I could have thought how it would look in the media. It would be turned in the media. It was a mistake on my behalf, and I didn't want it to be misinterpretated.
Nel: What did you think the media would do?
OP: If they found I, I think they would have said that I fired a round in a restaurant.
Nel: You did not want the truth in the media. You wanted to hide the media.OP: Even the truth is turned in the media.
Nel: "Darren told everyone that it was his fault" was it it fault?
OP: It was both our fault, his fault for handing me a firearm that was loaded and me for it not checking the magazine.
Nel: This is a good example of you not taking responsibity?
OP: I think I did take responsibility by asking to pay for the damages.
Nel: I am putting it to you, you fired that gun.There is no other way, you fired that gun in the restaurant.
Nel: How do you carry your gun?
OP: I have two different holsters' my lady.
OP: When you trigger on my gun, when you cock the gun it is fairly easy, The weight is very light. My gun has a double safety. I usually carry one up.
Nel: After all that, you carry one up. So you and Mr. Fresco go to the shooting range fairly often?
OP: I am not sure,how often he goes, my lady.
Nel: So Mr. Fresco carries one up?
OP: I am not sure, but I wouldn't as it doe snot have a double safety mechanism on it.
Nel: I am still unfortunately, you are still not telling the truth.
Nel: Exhibit ZZ, back to the "whatsapp" messages.
Nel: I don't want to rehash everything, you said you were late, you had to go to lunch, you had training and you had plans.
Nel: You will be very surprised to hear that it was a Sunday.
OP: I am not surprised, as I said I think it was a Saturday.
Nel: So, let's hear what you had to do on a Sunday.
OP: I had to go to training.
OP: I train every day of the week.
OP: I said "I think it was a Saturday", I train every day. Mr. Rooney was here from the UK, we had to go train. I had to go eat.
Nel: I thought you would brush it off. Let's go one step further, you were late because of picking up Gina?
OP: As far as I can remember that is why we were late.
Nel: So, if I'm able to show you that you were late because of a burst pipe?
OP: I don't remember, my lady.
Nel: The song, was it played on your way to the function or on the way back?
OP: I asked Mr. Rooney on the way from the function.
Nel: Have you snapped at Reeva in the past?
OP: You can say that I have got upset at Reeva in the past. I don't think I have ever shouted at her. I think if I had snapped at her, she would have brought it up then.
Nel: Was she scared of you then?
Nel: That's not what the messages say.
Nel: You admit that the ammunition was found in your safe? And that you had control of that safe?
OP: There were two safes in the house. Several people had access to that safe.
Nel: Do you say that you kept your ammunition in that safe as well and that several people had access to that safe?
