Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
SuperSport presenter Robert Marawa appeared briefly in the Randburg magistrate's court yesterday on a charge of reckless and negligent driving.
Marawa was arrested for speeding in the early hours of Sunday on the N1 highway.
He is charged with driving at 169kmh in a 120km zone. He was travelling in his BMW 650.
Bramley police spokesperson Inspector Moses Maphakela said Marawa was detained at the Sandton police station at about 4am and was released at 6.15am the same day on R500 bail.
Marawa was one of seven motorists arrested on the highway for speeding. The highest speed - 184kmh - was recorded by the driver of a BMW 323.
Wearing jeans, a white shirt and a black and white stripped jacket, Marawa kept making phone calls outside court enquiring about when his case would be allocated a court.
He arrived at the court at about 8.30am but his name was only called just before lunch time.
He looked calm as he stood in the dock.
Marawa's bail was extended and he is expected to appear again in court sometime next month.
