Port Elizabeth: Reeva Steenkamp’s funeral has been held in Port Elizabeth even as Oscar Pistorius’ bail plea is being heard in a court.

The family and friends of Steenkamp have demanded a severe punishment for the 26-year-old who has been charged for her murder.

Gavin Venter, a former Jockey who worked with Reeva’s father has called Pistorius a danger to the public.

"He`s a danger to the public. He`ll be a danger to witnesses. He must stay in jail. He`s already shown how dangerous he can be for what he did to Reeva," he was quoted as saying by The Guardian on Tuesday.
