Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
A teenager told the Cape high court yesterday of his reluctance to get involved in the murder of baby Jordan-Leigh Norton.
The youth turned 18 in prison last Sunday, but may still not be named until the judge decides on Thursday whether he should be identified along with his other four co-accused.
He told Judge Basheer Waglay and two assessors that the alleged mastermind, Dina Rodrigues, had offered shebeen and taxi owner Sipho Mfazwe R10000 for the murder of the infant.
The teenager said he and co-accused Mongezi Bobotyane and Zanethemba Gwada were playing pool at Mfazwe's township shebeen when Mfazwe told them of Rodrigues' R10000 offer.
He said they went to the house where the baby was and when they left, Bobotyane confirmed he had stabbed the baby and produced a bloody knife. The hearing continues. - Sapa
