Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
The Limpopo department of roads and transport still has to finalise the issue of the province's vehicle number plates, declared illegal months ago.
This is despite an undertaking in May by MEC for roads and transport Justice Piitso who promised that the thorny issue concerning the "L" number plates would have been resolved by the end of August.
The plates, bearing the letter L, had replaced those with the letter N after the province was renamed Limpopo. It was later found that the number plates, that are still currently being issued, fell short of meeting the required SABS standards and were therefore declared illegal.
"We have finalised all aspects that will be considered in terms of ensuring that the security features on the registration plates are SABS-compliant. Once the go-ahead has been given, the department will call on all interested service providers to register with the SABS," said the department's spokesman, Boiki Tsedu.
