At 2:20 a.m. the guard tracker near Mr. Pistorius' house was activated.
Roux asks about a guard tracker that the guards activate to show that they'd done their patrol. Baba explains how it works. There's a guard track in front of Pistorius' house. The guards must activate it once an hour or it'll signal "failed patrol."
Roux begins cross-examination.
Nel asks if there were lights on in the house, Baba says yes. Nel has no further questions.
Baba also gave a statement to police, but he doesn't remember the captain's name.
Stander also said the security guards should make sure no cars were parked near Pistorius' house. Baba then left to call the police.
Mr. Stander told the security guards to call the police and an ambulance.
Baba's testimony is a bit disjointed. He's not very specific. The judge asks where Pistorius was "coming down" from. Baba says he means from the top floor of his house, down the stairs.
Nel asks Baba to clarify what he means by "coming down with Reeva." Baba says Pistorius was carrying Steenkamp.
Baba and two other security guards when back to the house. They saw Mr. Pistorius come down with Steenkamp. Baba says he was so shocked that for a few moments he couldn't even think.
Baba says he could tell from their faces that something was wrong.
Later, Mr. Stander and his daughter arrived.
Pistorius later called Mr. Baba but only cried on the phone.
Baba then drove to Pistorius' house. Baba says that Pistorius told him that "everything is fine" but Baba could see he was crying. He realized everything was not fine.
Baba contacted the guard with the pick-up truck so they could go investigate and he told the bike patrol guard to return to the scene to check that everything was OK. When they arrived near Pistorius' house Dr. Stipp was on his balcony and pointed towards Pistorius' house.
The security guard on bike patrol told Baba that he'd heard gun shots shortly after 3 a.m. Baba then received phone calls from two residents who'd heard gun shots.
Baba says the security guards have a land line phone as well as a cell phone which they can use to contact residents. He says that all the residents have the phone numbers to both phones.
Baba seems a bit nervous, he asks if he can drink some water from the bottle next to him.
Baba says one side of the estate's access gate is closed at 8 p.m. and all the gates are closed at 9 p.m.
Baba says Pistorius arrived at the estate a few minutes after Steenkamp got there. He greeted Mr. Pistorius who was on his cell phone.
Nel asks if Baba called Pistorius' house when Steenkamp arrived. Baba says he didn't call Pistorius because Steenkamp had already been to the house during the day.
Baba says Steenkamp arrived at Pistorius' house at 6 p.m. on February 13, 2013. She was alone.
Baba referred to the vehicle the security supervisor drove as a "bakkie." A bakkie is a pick-up truck.
Baba says he knows Mr. Pistorius because he's always on TV and has a house in the estate.
Baba was on duty the night Reeva Steenkamp died.
Baba details the procedure for letting visitors into Silverwoods Estate. Security asks for the name of the person visiting, checks their driver's license, takes down their license plate number and then calls the house they're visiting to check for entry permission.
My apologies - Baba doesn't object to being on camera but he's not being shown.
Baba has worked at Silverwoods Estate for 2 years. He's the shift leader.
Baba is a security guard at Silverwoods Estate.
Baba is testifying in Afrikaans and is not shown on camera.
State advocate Nel calls the next witness - Pieter Baba.
Court is back after lunch.
As per the last few days Nel asks for an early lunch. Judge Masipa dismisses court for an hour.
Taylor says Pistorius heard something hit the bathroom window. She says Pistorius woke her up and asked if she'd heard it too. Taylor says this wasn't the only time Pistorius woke her up to see if she'd heard a noise, there were others. Roux has no questions. Taylor is excused.
Nel asks Taylor if there was ever an occasion where she was at his house and Pistorius thought there was an intruder. Taylor says yes.
