Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
NEW DELHI - DELHI chief minister Sheila Dikshit said yesterday she can only pray for a successful Commonwealth Games next year after admitting to delays in the construction of venues.
"I only keep praying that we won't let the country down," Dikshit told the Press Trust of India as concerns mounted over the slow progress of work for the October 3 to 14 Games in the Indian capital.
Dikshit's remarks came after Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) president Mike Fennell said he was distressed by a report that two major venues won't be ready until June next year, barely three months before the opening ceremony.
The CGF's co-ordination commission said last week that work on the Nehru Stadium, where the opening and closing ceremonies and the athletics programme will be held, and the swimming complex, was way behind schedule.
The Games will feature 71 nations and territories, mainly from the former British Empire. - AFP
