According to reports, the female prison warden who was filmed having sex with a male prisoner at a KwaZulu-Natal prison has been fired and the prisoner has been moved to a different facility.
Department of Correctional Services spokesperson, Singabakho Nxumalo, said in a statement that a second officer had also been fired for allegedly allowing the couple to use her office.
Nxumalo said, “This outcome emanates from a disciplinary process which was instituted following the unfortunate incident. The inmate involved was also not spared any mercy as he has been reclassified into the Maximum category, he lost privileges and has been moved to another facility,”.
He continued saying, ” (The) DCS will not hesitate to act against any form of transgressions. Ideal correctional officials must be exemplary not only to inmates but to the broader general society,”.
