The 54-year-old added: “He has our forgiveness and in return why cannot he just tell the truth? He puts us through hell every single day until he tells the truth.
“My religion and my heart tells me it is wrong to seek revenge. I forgive him for shooting her dead. As a Christian, I have to.”
BBC One plans to screen documentary The Trials Of Oscar Pistorius this Saturday.
The Paralympic gold medallist, 33, known as Blade Runner, is serving 13 years for the 2013 murder of Reeva, 29, in South Africa.
