Paralympian Oscar Pistorius was sentenced to five years imprisonment for the culpable homicide killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

He was also sentenced to three years, suspended for five years, for firing a pistol under a table at

Tasha's restaurant in Johannesburg in January 2013.

Celebrities say they can’t cope with the ‘unjust’ law that was used to finalize the Oscar Trial. They feel there has been no justice for Reeva.

“Just five years,” Sizwe Dhlomo questioned.

He also posed another question to his twitter followers asking them if they think state Lawyer Gerrie Nel will file an appeal.

Sizwe Dhlomo: Do you guys think Nel will file the appeal before or after lunch?
Still in disbelief they consider Oscars sentence light and assume that he will spend less than two years in prison.

Melanie Carmen tweeted: Incredible few months. Fascinating case. Completely disappointed in our Justice system. #OscarTrial

Model Babalwa Mneno tweeted: So of tht 5yrs Oscar mite only serve 8months in jail and d rest under home supervision!!!! Hehehe....hai sa I'm just not dealin.

Actress Letoya Makhene tweeted: #OscarTrial #Thixo The two sentences running concurrently??? He Might not even serve the full 5…

Radio and sport personality Mpho Maboi had a different view of the verdict, she expected a lesser sentence.
5 years is better than the suspended sentence I expected her to hand down..., she wrote.
“And if something like this happens to me. I call for street justice. Nim'nyise lowo sathane,” wrote Pearl Thusi.


He will be out in less than a year!!! RT GomomoM: 5 is better than nothing! Oscar dnt drop the soap!The big dawg - shared on twitter.

Mpho Maboi thinks the 5 years jail imprisonment given to Oscar is better....

"5 years is better than the suspended sentence I expected her to hand down.."  @MphoMaboi shared.

Scenes of jubilation mingled with snapshots of heartbreak on SABC on Saturday night, when The X Factor South Africa revealed the top nine acts who will go through to the high-pressure round of live gala shows starting this coming weekend. Television audiences waited with bated breath as the field of thousands of South African X Factor hopefuls was further whittled down by judges/mentors Zonke and Carstens - but not without plenty of fears, frayed nerves and chewed fingernails.

After the competition visited the judges homes, Zonke (with guest judge Zakes Bantwini) and Carstens (with guest judge Toya delazy) were faced with the organizing task of selecting their top three solo singers in the over-24 and under-24 age categories respectively. Oskido had already hand-picked the three groups he wanted to see competing in the next round.

That difficult deed has now been carried out and starting this weekend, on Saturday 25 October at 17:30 on SABC1, the top nine acts - solo vocalists and groups - will have to sing their hearts out live on stage as they compete for a lucrative Sony Music Entertainment recording and a cool R300 000 cash prize.

Viewers have the power to decide who stays and who goes by voting for their favorite acts on the SMS line 33121, using the number allocated to each of the nine finalists. The results show will be broadcast on SABC1 on the same night as the live gala show, from 19:30 to 20:00.

Here are the top nine acts that will be going through to the live performance round, starting this Saturday:
Avodah (with members Nonkululeko Cossa, Nondumiso Radebe, Thembisa Ndlovu, Phila Masimang, Siziphiwe Ndlovu and Sindi Ntombela) - XF 1

Wnadile "Bubbles" Nomiya - XF 2

Eliezer Hilmer - XF 3

Four (With members Jethro Tait, David Evan Januari and Steven Lee Lewis) - XF 4

Gavin Edwards - XF 5

Iziqhaza (with members Khanyisa Mbuthu and Mbongeni Mavuso) - XF 4

MJ Scholtz - XF 7

Princess Mekoa - XF 8

Wandaboy Ngubeni - XF 9

"We are incredibly excited now that the top nine acts have been announced, because from here the stakes get progressively higher and the entertainment escalates every week until the live finale in Durban on 13 December," says SABC TV Head of Publicity Zandile Nkonyeni. "That's when one singer or group will be crowned South Africa's very first X Factor winner."

So get SMSing and cast your vote for the singer or group you think has that one-of-kind quality - that U-X ongasolveki!

The Kulungile Baba hitmaker has revealed how he got diagnosed.

"At first i didn't take it seriously when my body started swelling. I thought it was because of travelling and performances," he said.

The doctors ordered him to avoid strenuous activities after he almost collapsed one day when his pulse slowed down dramatically.

Further investigation revealed that his heart was surrounded by acidic water. "In April i went for scans and ultra-sound before the drainage."

This was followed by weekly visits for further scans.

"I out of danger now and i count myself lucky that i survived. I have been given strict instructions to monitor my weight and eat healthy.

"I was pap and vleis kind of guy and i had to stop that completely," he said.

This turn of events delayed his time in the studio to record a new album, Bayede Baba

"I didn't keep my illness a secret but i just didn't want to worry my fans. I know that my recovery was through God's grace. When i was ill there were people i know who died from the same condition."

Ncwane had also stopped performing. "I had to cancel gigs last year and early this year as i was taking it easy following the doctors."

He has also failed to enter the Crown Gospel music Awards. "I had plans to enter the awards this year, but when i got sick i took time[off] to nurse my health.

To dispel any rumors fueled by his non-participation and a long-suspected tiff with the awards's organizer Zanele Mbokazi. Ncwane said he would perform at the events should he be invited.
