Steenkamp family: Pistorius release 'makes no difference' to us

The family of Reeva Steenkamp has said they intend to keep the memory of their slain daughter alive by establishing a charity in their her name, adding that the early release of Oscar Pistorius "makes no difference" to them.

Speaking to ITV News via Skype on behalf of the Steenkamp family, Tania Koen said they are not focusing on Pistorius' release into correctional supervision, instead putting "all their energy" into the Reeva Rebecca Steenkamp Foundation.

It makes no difference to the Steenkamp 's lives whether Oscar Pistorius was released earlier or later...their daughter is still not coming back.

They are focusing all their energy on the the Reeva Rebecca Steenkamp Foundation to continue with the good work she would have done had seen been still alive.

– Tania Koen, family spokesperson
