Two young tenants have denied planning to turn Oscar Pistorius’ former Silverwoods Country Estates into a major party venue.

Business partners David Scott (33) and Kagiso Mokoape (23) sought to distance themselves on Monday from what they had said in a video that surfaced at the weekend.

The video by Netwerk24 captured the two showing the inside of the house, stating they would be hosting parties every weekend.

In the video, Scott said: “This is an entertainer’s house. Oscar built this house to entertain. Hot girls can invite themselves.”

House mate and business partner Mokoape added: “Every weekend, it’s going to go down here. Find me here. Find us here. Silverwoods Country Estates.”

Speaking to Rekord on Monday, Scott said the video was blown out of proportion and did not include what the interview was initially about.

“Someone gave them (Netwerk24) a tip-off that we had just moved in. 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 us,” he said.

Scott was captured giving his own version of what happened the night the Paralympian shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in February 2013.

“I know what happened. I can tell you. I had girlfriends before. I can tell you now they had a fight. Oscar’s girlfriend did what a typical woman would do to any man – tried to double (cross) him, and with a syndrome that he has, with his legs being amputated, he would have flipped easily.”

“He went after her. She locked herself in the bathroom. She said she’s going to phone someone and Oscar shot her. That’s what happened,” he said in the video.

Scott said the news agency had assured them they were not being recorded.

“We were relaxed and fooling around. We were joking around, thinking we weren’t being recorded.”

In the first segment of the video, Scott said they had planned on decorating the house in honour of Reeva.

“What they left out was the part where we said we want to invite people over to view where it happened and all proceeds would be given to a charity for women and child abuse.”

Mokoape said the video and tour of the house was meant to send a positive message in celebration of life.

“We wanted to show people that we wouldn’t be using the house for any negativity and that people should enjoy and celebrate life. Even though on video it might seem we had planned on throwing parties, we actually will not do that. We have not distracted anyone in the estate.”
