Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Mpumalanga police have called on members of the community to help identify a man whose body was found in a plantation in Belfast in October last year.
Police say the man was found by passers-by. His body did not have any visible injuries though police suspect he had been murdered.
Police told Sowetan that the man was dressed in a way that made them believe he was a truck driver.
"The inside of his pockets were out, suggesting that he might have been searched in a possible robbery before being murdered," said Mpumalanga police spokesman Superintendent Abie Khoabane yesterday.
Khoabane said the man's body has been lying at a mortuary in Belfast since then.
Police suspect the victim might have been hijacked while driving a truck, but said investigations were continuing.
