Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
THE case against 99 South African Unemployment People's Movement members, accused of going on a looting spree in July, was yesterday postponed by the Durban magistrate's court.
Forty-one were accused of shoplifting and theft and 58 accused of public violence during an alleged looting spree at Shoprite Checkers and Pick n Pay stores in central Durban.
The two groups appeared in separate courtrooms yesterday.
Four of the accused failed to appear in court.
The movement has claimed that it was demonstrating to the government that the unemployed people of South Africa were hungry.
The organisation has warned of more demonstrations.
Magistrate Shamina Maharaj postponed the case against those charged with shoplifting until October 14, and those charged with public violence until October 21. - Sapa
