Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
FIRST-CHOICE Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune says the ubiquitous vuvuzelas were not loud enough in their opening 2010 Fifa World Cup match against Mexico.
"I did not hear the sound of the vuvuzelas. It was like people did not bring them at all to the stadium," said Khune, who had a terrific game.
"We appeal to the South Africans to please bring more vuvuzelas to the stadium in our next match against Uruguay at Loftus Stadium on Wednesday night.
"We want to hear the sound of vuvuzelas reverberating in all our matches. The more the sound of vuvuzelas, the better for us. We always feel good when we hear the sound of the vuvuzelas."
And so the celebrated Kaizer Chiefs shot-stopper is happy with the massive support that the South Africans are showing for the national squad.
"South Africa will never be the same after the World Cup. As players we are so encouraged by the incredible support we are getting.
"South Africans, young and old, are rallying round the team and we appreciate their wonderful support. We promise that we will do our best to make them happy and proud.
"The game against Mexico was tough. We were a bit nervous because that was our first game. But we managed to settle down nicely as the first half progressed and gained confidence," said Khune, adding that they were out to get their first win of the tournament against Uruguay.
"It will be a tough one but we are ready for them. We saw them against France in their goalless draw. They are a good side with brilliant players.
"We want to make history by being the first Bafana Bafana squad to reach the knockout stages. In fact, our aim is to go all the way in the tournament.
"The trend in the World Cup since the France 1998 is that the hosting teams always do well. We don't want to break that momentum," added Khune.
