Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
FACEBOOK continues to be the battleground for the war of words between Cope's former second deputy president Lynda Odendaal and the party's former spin doctor, Sipho Ngwema.
Ngwema kicked off the squabble this week when he published a personal letter to Odendaal in which he described her as a "political novice" who should not have been elected as the party's second deputy president.
He also accused her of being paranoid after her appointment - when she demanded that bodyguards be assigned to her.
Yesterday, Ngwema posted a response from Odendaal, in which she argued her family "rightfully insisted that I have protection during my travels by road, 16000km, to all corners of the country".
"These security services were funded by our family and did not cost Cope one cent."
Odendaal said she had sacrificed the stability of her business empire to work for the party and opened her home for Cope to hold its meetings.
In a parting shot, after admitting she might not be a typical politician, she wrote . "So unlike you, Sipho, who went on strike when Cope did not pay your stipend on time."
