Roux: Was there any friendship between the two of you?
MN: Mainly the friendly neighbor.
Roux: Did you socialize together?
Roux: Did you see him from time to time in the estate?
MN: Yes, my lady. Oscar is not really the type of neighbor that will drive by and wave but will get out of his car and greet me and have a chat.
Roux: Did you share an interest?
MN: Yes, we shared an interest in cars.
Roux: Did you ever meet Reeva?
MN: I met Reeva once, I think it was a Sunday or Saturday before the 14 February 2013. OP was driving a white BMW, he parked outside my house.
MN: He introduced Reeva to me, at the time I did not know it was Reeva. Then he introduced her to me.
MN: One thing that striked me was, that when I went to greet her by hand, she just opened her arms and hugged me.
MN: That is why I am so touched. I met Reeva at that point in time.
Judge: What is that disturbance?
Judge: It is a cellphone, the owner may leave this court.
Roux: Was there any discussion at this point with OP?
MN: When he introduced her to me, he said this is my fiancé. And I was like wow, I said to OP this one is for keeps.
Roux: I want to show you some photographs, if you can please show us which house is your house.
MN: My house is over there.
Roux: Can you see that bedroom and balcony there?
MN: Yes, my lady, it is my daughters' balcony.
Roux: We know by now, where the bathroom window of OP's house and the toilet window, in relation to your house?
NM: Looking at the bathroom my lady, it is closer to my daughter's balcony.
Roux: The evening of the 13 February 2013, were you at home?
MN: Yes, I was at home and my wife. My children were there aswell.
Roux: After falling asleep, what woke you up?
MN: On the early hours of that morning, my lady. I was woken up by my wife, she said she heard a bang. She was not sure if it was in our house or outside.
MN: My concern was that if it was in my house, my daughter was across from our room. I went and checked her door, as we always lock the doors at night.
MN: I then went and checked the downstairs doors. And then I went back upstairs. I told my wife it was not in our house, so it must be outside.
MN: In that moment, we started hearing a man that was crying very loud. We went into that shock mode. Something was very wrong.
MN: It could be our neighbor, it could be a security guard. Soemthing was wrong.
MN: There is a difference in crying, there is a crying that is just crying because you are sad and there is crying for danger. It was very loud.
Roux: You said a man's voice, was it a low tone or a high tone?
