A female warder has been suspended after she was caught on camera having sex with a male inmate in an office at the prison in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
The intimate moment seemed to be consensual as the video showed the female warder kissing the inmate before getting half-naked and having sex.
The spokesperson of the South Africa National correctional services, Singgabakho Nxumalo, on Wednesday disclosed that a disciplinary committee has suspended a female prison wader who was caught having sex with a prisoner.
Nxumalo, who disclosed this in a statement, vowed to take immediate action against the prison warder and the inmate, both of whom have been identified.
“A video with flustering scenes of alleged sexual activity between an official and an inmate at the Ncome Correctional Centre, KwaZulu-Natal Region, has left the Department of Correctional Services appalled, embarrassed and gutted.
“Sexual 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 sexual activities with inmates shall never be tolerated.”
Nxumalo further revealed that the female warder 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. Despicable acts of sexual activities with inmates shall never be tolerated.
“We have suspended the official involved and we’ve taken disciplinary measures against the inmate.”
“The investigation is much broader than the two people seen on the video because … We need to understand if it is just an isolated incident or if there is more to it and if there are other players.”
“We do not want them [cellphones] in our centres. This is a classic case, a cellphone was used to record this.”
“Cellphones are just one item in the long list of contraband items that are not allowed because they cause harm to the victims outside and used to plan other crimes. They could even order hits on others.”
“It’s completely unpalatable. I don’t think that the nation would deserve to see something like that, captured in video, and you are correct, both of them [were] fully aware they are recording this thing.”
“Sexual activities between inmates and correctional officials are shameful incidents that can never be ascribed to what is expected of our officials. The official involved has been identified and she will be subjected to a disciplinary process with immediate effect.”
“Correctional officials are expected to abide by a code of conduct, and despicable acts of sexual activities with inmates shall never be tolerated. We appeal to those in possession of the video to refrain from disseminating it.”
KanyiDaily had also reported how a 26-year-old female prison officer, who fell in love with an inmate and performed a sex act on him in his cell, has been jailed for a year.
