Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Soweto police are looking for family of Frank Mogoale Mahlatsi, 82, who was found dead in his shack in Eldorado Park.
The Mahlatsi family is believed to be from around Lebowakgomo in Limpopo.
His body was found in his shack in July after neighbours became suspicious about his whereabouts.
"He once told his landlord that his nephew was a policeman in Lebowakgomo," police spokesman Phillimon Khorombi said.
Khorombi said people with information should contact Captain Arnold Dengelo on 072-106-4420.
