Kimberley - A teenager who has been accused of killing the Steenkamp family on a Griekwastad farm, is not suffering too much in prison.

A family friend told Volksblad that the boy received treats, food and plenty of visits from family and friends in the holding cells at the Galeshewe police station.

The 16-year-old will soon have his bail application.

“His circumstances are very good. He is not suffering whatsoever and has more than enough contact with several friends, family members, strangers and legal people while in custody.”

The teen could wear his own clothes and had a cell with a toilet, shower and basin with cold water.  

“According to him they got bread in the morning, mince for lunch and yellow rice and soup at night. He is refusing to eat it and is getting enough food and treats from friends and family,” said a family friend.

The boy’s bail application would be heard on Monday.
