"Round two, I have been arrested for the second time. You know what guys, [life] inside prison is tough. You thought life was easy. However, I am going to be fine, I'm coming back soon and I will show you sh*t."

"Do you know this place? This is my home," he said.
The video was shared again on Facebook by Concerned Citizens South Africa, take a look at it below:
The alleged murderous teen appeared in the Seshego Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for the murder of Thoriso Kgomo - a Grade 12 learner at Northern Academy School in Polokwane.
The suspect allegedly stabbed Kgomo at Zone 3 Seshego on 2 January. Kgomo was rushed to a hospital but they were unable to save his life and he passed away on Sunday.
The police have denied claims that the suspect filmed the video in a police cell. According to Brig Motlafela Mojapelo, the clip was taken at a centre where the teen was being held.
"We don't allow inmates to enter our police cells with cellphones," Mojapelo said.
Mojapelo said the teen would have been in a prison uniform if he was held in a cell. However, he sported "casual" clothing, which indicated he had been kept in a centre.
