Probe underway after NW prison warder commits suicide
A picture on social media appears to show the warder being intimate with an inmate.
JOHANNESBURG - The Correctional Services Department is investigating how a picture of a North West prison warder, appearing to be intimate with an inmate, ended up on social media.
The incident is alleged to have caused the Losperfontein Correctional Centre employee to take her own life on Monday.
An investigation is underway following the incident.
The department’s Singabakho Nxumalo says the prisoner has been moved to another centre.
“The investigating officer will recommend that action be taken against that inmate and the nature of the charges against the inmate. We have temporarily moved that inmate from that centre to another so that the investigation is not compromised.”
