Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Charles Modise, a Malawian businessman arrested for alleged tender fraud to the tune of R35million in Northern Cape, appeared in the Kimberley magistrate's court yesterday.
National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesman Tlali Tlali said the case was postponed to November 28 and 29 for a formal bail application.
The Scorpions arrested Modise in Gauteng after an investigation into alleged tender fraud dating back to 2003.
Some of the charges relate to government tenders for the Northern Cape legislature, a parliamentary residential area, the renovation of the airports at Kimberley and Upington, and toll roads.
Tlali said more arrests would follow in the case.
Modise made headlines recently when he laid a complaint against the South African Communist Party (SACP) over a R500000 "gift" he said he made to the SACP in 2002.
He alleged the money had been given to Cosatu president Willie Madisha, who said he delivered it to SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande in 2002.
Nzimande has denied receiving the money. - Sapa
