Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
BAFANA Bafana defender Aaron "Mbazo" Mokoena has attained yet another remarkable achievement - equalling Lucas "Rhoo" Radebe's record of 43 games as captain.
"I was not even aware about this record," said Mokoena after Bafana Bafana beat Poland 1-0 at Orlando Stadium on Saturday.
This was Bafana Bafana's last match before the Confederations Cup, which will be played at four South African cities from June 14 to 28.
"For me, the most important thing was to contribute to the success of Bafana Bafana. It was an important match for all of us going into the Confederations Cup," Mokoena said.
Mokoena made his international debut in 1999 when Bafana Bafana took on neighbours Botswana in the Cosafa Cup on February 20.
At that stage, the former Jomo Cosmos defender was the youngest player to represent Bafana Bafana at the age of 18.
Despite holding a joint record as captain of Bafana Bafana with Radebe, Mokoena is the team's most capped player with 85 games.
Ironically, Bafana Bafana defender Matthew Booth made his debut on the same day with Mokoena but the Mamelodi Sundowns player has 20 caps.
Mokoena became the 21st captain of Bafana Bafana in 2004.
"I still have a few more years to play, I'm not even thinking about the records," said Mokoena, the first South African player to launch his own foundation.
The Aaron Mokoena Foundation will, among other things, help in the development of the game, expose talented youngsters to international soccer, offer life skills programmes and bursaries to the needy.
Meanwhile, midfielder Steven Pienaar has allayed fears that he might miss the opening match of the Confederations Cup against Iraq at Ellis Park Stadium on Sunday after suffering a knock against Poland.
Many South Africans were concerned after seeing Pienaar being replaced by Siphiwe Tshabalala after he twisted his right ankle. The Everton linkman has described the injury as minor.
"There is nothing to worry about because I'm fine," said a relaxed Pienaar.
Bafana Bafana manager Sipho Nkumane said like Pienaar, Teko Modise and Tsepo Masilela were also fit to play on Sunday.
The duo were rested for the game against Poland as a precautionary measure.
