Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
The late Jabu Khanyile's first wife yesterday temporarily prevented his second wife from tampering with or drawing money from the musician's estate.
Nomasonto Daphney Khanyile, 49, of Dobsonville, Soweto, is demanding that the musician's second wife, Khululiwe Gloria Sithole, 38, stops drawing money from the estate of their late husband.
Last Friday, Khanyile filed papers in the Johannesburg high court demanding that Sithole return all money and assets drawn from the estate, including three luxury cars and furniture.
Khanyile said that Sithole had unlawfully attempted to have herself appointed as the executrix of the deceased's estate.
Sithole yesterday indicated that she will oppose the matter and will file her answering affidavit on January 16.
But Sithole did agree not to tamper with or dissipate any of the assets of the deceased until the matter is finalised.
Khanyile has interdicted the master of the supreme court to stop him from appointing Sithole as the beneficiary in the estate of her husband.
She has also interdicted South African Music Rights Organisation, the Chissa Record Company, Investec bank, Nedbank, Absa bank, First National bank, African Life Assurance and Stanlib Wealth Management from paying out any further money from the estate.
She has further demanded that Sithole account for all monies she has obtained from the estate since six months prior to the musician's death and from the date of his death on November 12.
Khanyile said she had been married to the deceased for 25 years. According to her their marriage still existed and she attached a copy of their marriage certificate to her papers.
Khanyile said Sithole took control of the financial affairs of her husband when she realised that he had become sick and vulnerable.
Sithole also married him only four days before his death.
Khanyile said when Sithole also realised that her husband was very sick and had lapsed into unconsciousness, Sithole returned him to her home in Dobsonville the day before he died.
