Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
SACP secretary-general Blade Nzimande assured delegates at Cosatu's 10th National General Congress that he remained committed to the struggles of the working class despite having acquired a R1,1million BMW 7 series.
Nzimande said he was aware that socialism would not come to South Africa in a BMW luxury saloon.
"I want to assure you about two things as I start my address, that first of all I know very well that socialism won't come in a BMW.
"And I have not forgotten that. And secondly I want to assure you that I won't talk about the current performance of Kaizer Chiefs."
To cheers by hundreds of delegates at the congress at Gallagher Estate, Nzimande also continued his tirade against former president Thabo Mbeki when he blamed him for the political turmoil in the ANC and its alliance partners.
Nzimande accused Mbeki of leading a plot to destabilise the ANC and its alliance partners and accused him of being the architect of the so-called "1996 class project".
"It's been a tumultuous three years since Cosatu's ninth national congress in 2006. South Africa is a different place and it is sometimes difficult to believe how dramatically the ANC, our alliance and government, have changed in a space of just six months.
"When we addressed Cosatu's ninth congress, we observed that it was taking place during a challenging and complicated period in the history of our revolution. At the time we were in the grip of tyranny of the 1996 class project.
"Our state organs were under siege, Cosatu and the SACP were subjected to ridicule, particularly as a result of our support for comrade Jacob Zuma."
A triumphant Nzimande declared: "We stand here today able to declare that the left has not left but the right has left. It has regrouped under the burner of Cope."
