Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
The 35-year-old soldier who allegedly stabbed his fiancee in the Atteridgeville magistrate's court a month ago was denied bail at the Pretoria magistrate's court yesterday.
Smangaliso Petrus Nkosi was charged with attempted murder after he allegedly attacked Ineth Sibongile Ngobeni, 26, a nurse at the SANDF's Military 1 Hospital.
Magistrate Fikiswa Ntlati said Nkosi may endanger Ngobeni's life.
Nkosi allegedly stabbed Ngobeni three times during a domestic violence trial in the presence of a female magistrate who had just presided over the couple's case.
The case was postponed to March 6.
