WATCH Oscar Pistorius walking on his stumps

Convicted murderer, Oscar Pistorius stood up in front of the High Court in Pretoria without his prosthetic legs and walked around.

His lawyer, Barry Roux asked Pistorius to do this to defend himself from the arguments that he is violent man.

The paralympian is being sentenced for murder after the Supreme Court of Appeal overturned his culpable homicide conviction for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.

Judge Thokozile Masipa has granted the State’s application to lift the ban on the publication of the post-mortem pictures.

Pistorius will be sentenced on the 6th of July.
