Steenberg, 54, was at the Gauteng High Court, Pretoria, yesterday when two of the alleged killers of his last wife, Riekie Steenberg, briefly appeared.
She was shot dead on June 29, 2016, when several armed men stormed the smallholding. Steenberg was hit over the head with an unknown object. He was kicked and also shot at. The intruders hit him in the back, but he survived the ordeal.
His first wife, Suna, was shot six years before at the same smallholding - on the morning of April 16, 2010. She later died in hospital.
Following her death, the devastated Steenberg, who owned a business which erected lapas, moved from the smallholding as he could no longer handle being there.
