The new tenants of the house where athlete Oscar Pistorius shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp have been filmed giving a tour around the house.
In the video, they promise to host parties there, saying: “Oscar built this house to entertain”.
Pistorius family spokeswoman Anneliese Burgess described the footage as “bizarre” to the South African press.
David Scott and Kagiso Mokoape have apologised after giving the South African TV channel Netwerk24 a tour.
However, the pair told the Rekord newspaper they had been assured that they were not being recorded.
“They came to the house to interview us to promote our business. We were relaxed and giving our own opinion as they told us they were not recording,” Mr Scott said.
Mr Mokoape told the paper that the purpose of the video had been to send out a positive message that people “should enjoy and celebrate life”.
The business partners give the TV channel a tour of the house, including the bathroom where Ms Steenkamp died, whilst holding cans of beer.
At one point Mr Scott says: “This is definitely an entertainer’s house.”
