Convicted killer Oscar Pistorius has resumed community service, voluntarily sweeping church floors, three months after his release from prison.

Pistorius was convicted for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day in 2013 and was sentenced to 13 years behind bars the following year. During court proceedings, he claimed to have mistaken Steenkamp for an intruder when he heard a noise in the bathroom and subsequently fired shots through the door, resulting in her death.

According to a report by The New York Post, Pistorius had reached out to members of the International Paralympic Committee seeking employment opportunities but was deemed “too toxic” to work with. As a result, he has taken on light maintenance and janitorial duties at a church attended by his uncle.

Upon his release, the Department of Correctional Services stated that Pistorius would be monitored under the system of Community Corrections until the expiry of his sentence in 2029, with parole conditions applicable, including adherence to specified curfew hours and abstaining from alcohol and prohibited substances.
