Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
A 45-year-old man has been arrested following the gruesome murder of his 59-year-old wife.
The incident happened in Dullstroom, Mpumalanga, after the couple had an argument at about 2am on Tuesday.
Superintendent Abie Khoabane said the woman ran away from the house but could not get out of the yard because the gate was locked.
"The man followed her to the gate from where he dragged her back to the house, and stabbed her several times before leaving the house.
"Her body was found in the bedroom at about 3pm," said Khoabane.
He said police eventually arrested the suspect on Wednesday morning.
Khoabane urged people to seek help from social workers, pastors and elders when they had serious problems in their relationships..
