The department of correctional services has launched an investigation following a video of a prison warder having s__x with an inmate at the Ncome Correctional Centre in KwaZulu-Natal.
In videos that have been circulating on social media, the official, in her uniform, can be seen engaging in s.e.xual activities with the inmate
The video has now made its way to the public domain, landing the official in hot water.
“A video with flustering scenes of alleged s3xual activity between an official and an inmate at the Ncome Correctional Centre, KZN, has left the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) appalled, embarrassed, and gutted.
“S.3.xual activities between inmates and Correctional Officials are shameful incidents 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 s.e.xual activities with inmates shall never be tolerated.
“The official involved has been identified and she will be subjected to a disciplinary process with immediate effect. Disciplinary measures have also been instituted against the inmate,” said the department in a statement.
Meanwhile, South Africans have taken to social media to voice their opinion on the matter, with some condemning the official for putting her job on the line over s.3.x.
