Judge Matilda a formal apartheid journalist turned judge had a big decision to make in her court for the past 19 month, the case has made her famous, and story told to the world.
She fought the white with her pen now she has a white boy stand in front of her on a case of suspected murder but as soon as the case resumes DRAMA resumed, there was twist and turn, emotion flowed from the suspect but after 19 month he was found innocent of murder but guilty of. Culpable homicide.
Finally the the families(Oscar and steenkamp) where satisfied.
Oscar’s sentence could be review after 10 month (I.e increased or otherwise) based on reports from the prison.
I want to draw two issues if the judge was a journalist during apartheid, one would have thought she would have use this opportunity to pay the whites back but she didn’t and was balanced and tilted.
If Oscar really committed the offense then he must be a good Actor, when he is back from prison, Hollywood his calling on him.
As an onlooker the Judge as done well and fair even in her imperfect human nature.
