Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Many whose lives have been touched by author and educationist Professor Es'kia Mphahlele, who died on Monday aged 88, will fondly remember the literary giant.
Banned by the apartheid government in 1957, Mphahlele emigrated to the United States and returned in 1977.
He joined the University of the Witwatersrand as its first black professor and founded the African literature department.
Mphahlele, a former school teacher, began his journalism career at Drum magazine in the 1950s - alongside such rabble-rousing greats as Can Themba, Arthur Maimane and Henry Nxumalo.
His legacy lives on today through The Es'kia Institute and books he authored with a peculiar diction and imagery.
