Pretoria - Murder accused and paralympian Oscar Pistorius's PR company said on Thursday it was using his website to post the “correct facts” about him, according to a report on Thursday.

Janine Hills, from Vuma Reputation Management, said her company would attempt to load statements at least twice a day.

Everything written about Pistorius would be monitored, and journalists were requested to forward their stories to the company, reported Beeld newspaper.

On the website, Vuma had also posted information about Pistorius' charity projects, photographs, history and videos.

They said media queries would usually be referred to the website.

“We're being inundated with requests, and we can't keep up.”

Vuma Reputation Management had been appointed to work as a team with British spindoctor Stuart Higgins, who would provide support from his London office, reported Beeld.

Higgins told the Afrikaans daily it was untrue that his contract had been cancelled, but it had been decided to hand over to Vuma because of his lack of experience and knowledge of the South African media. - Sapa
