He posted:

  • 14 February 2014

    No words can adequately capture my feelings about the devastating accident that has caused such heartache for everyone who truly loved - and continues to love Reeva.

    The pain and sadness – especially for Reeva’s parents, family and friends consumes me with sorrow.

    The loss of Reeva and the complete trauma of that day, I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
