South Africa’s Department of Correctional Services has vowed to take immediate action against the prison warder and the prisoner, both of whom have been identified.
The spokesperson for the department, Singabakho Nxumalo who confirmed the authenticity of the video said the flustering scenes of alleged $3xual activity between an official and an inmate at the Ncome Correctional Centre has left the agency appalled, embarrassed and gutted.
The video which has gone viral on social media showed the female warder passionately ki$$ing the prisoner in what looks like an office inside the prison before they got half-nakk3d and also got into the act.
In a statement, Singabakho Nxum said: “A video with flustering scenes of alleged $3xual activity between an official and a prisoner at the Ncome Correctional Centre, KwaZulu-Natal Region, has left the Department of Correctional Services appalled, embarrassed and gutted.
“$3xual activities between inmates and correctional officials are shameful inc!dents that can never be ascribed to what is expected of our officials.
“Correctional officials are expected to abide by a code of conduct, and despicable acts of $3xual activities with inmates shall never be tolerated.
“Disciplinary measures have also been instituted against the inmate. Despicable acts of $3xual activities with inmates shall never be tolerated.”
Reports say the department of correctional services said in January that it was installing body scanners at identified correctional facilities within six management areas to clamp down the smuggling of contraband into prisons.
According to the country’s Justice and Correctional Services Minister Ronald Lamola, the body scanners were introduced after an official was caught at St Albans Correctional Centre in the Eastern Cape trying to smuggle contraband.
Now, it appears the cameras meant to clamp down on the smuggling of contraband into prisons will be serving other useful purposes that were not initially contemplated.
