This time in Westville, weeks after a female prison warden in Ncome was fired for having sex with a male prisoner.
Reports are that a senior male official and a female prisoner who is serving a 20-year sentence for murder were embroiled in explicit sexual acts was brought to the attention of the Department.
The senior official has been with the Westville facility for over 15 years and has since been suspended.
Although video footage of the incident is lacking, spokesperson for the regional authority, Thulani Mdluli affirms that such actions are ‘unacceptable’ and vows that the department will be taking serious disciplinary action against the official.
The female inmate has since been transferred to a maximum-security facility.
The pair were caught having sexual intercourse by a fellow Westville prison official who reported the matter.
