CAPE TOWN - The Correctional Services Department says ex-gang boss Rashied Staggie will be confined to the Cape Metro when his day parole kicks off on Monday.

Staggie who is the former Hard Livings gang leader will clock in at Pollsmor Prison at night until his day parole ends in March next year.

The Department's James Smalberger says his wherabouts will be monitored 24 hours a day.

"There will be a tag attached to him which will indicate to the department on a 24/7 basis where he is.

"If he goes out of the area where he is not supposed to go it will immediately be recorded."

Staggie is serving a 15 year sentence after he was found guilty of kidnapping and raping a 17 year old girl and robbing a police weapons storage facility in 2004.
