CAPE TOWN - The Department of Correctional Services has confirmed former convicted gang boss Rashied Staggie's parole was revoked this morning.

After serving more than a decade behind bars, Staggie was released on day parole two months ago.

Staggie is believed to have violated his parole conditions and has been taken back to Pollsmoor Prison.

The department says it is investigating the alleged parole violations, but has not divulged any further details.

Staggie was convicted on a charge of rape in 2003 and sentenced to 15 years in jail.

In 2004, he was also convicted of robbing a police armoury and sentenced to 13 years behind bars.

He was released on strict day parole conditions which included that he had to be employed and wear an electronic tracking device to monitor his movements.

Over the weekend, he joined the newly formed Patriotic Alliance.

The party, which is led by ex-convict Gayton McKenzie, says it plans to win the Western Cape in the upcoming general elections.
