Maverick 'Sun City' prison officials may be stripped of duties

Another prisoner gets some special treatment

The Department of Correctional Services will hold an urgent media briefing about the explicit photos making rounds on social media platforms.

Photos of half-naked women "entertaining" inmates at Johannesburg's Medium B prison, commonly known as Sun City, sparked outrage across the country on Monday.

In a press conference, the department condemned the incident, and said it would investigate the matter and those found to be guilty would face the consequences.

Thirteen prison officers face disciplinary action and, Smalberger says, will be hit with the "full might of our code of conduct"; whilst some deny knowledge of the type of women that were being invited in.

But the women - and their choice of clothing - took authorities by surprise.

"The preliminary findings indicate that at least 13 officials will be served with letters of contemplation of suspension".

Gauteng correctional services spokesman Ofentse Morwane told local news site TimesLive: "When the dancers arrived‚ we saw that they were wearing lingerie".

A number of pictures of scantily clad women dancing with inmates of the jail appeared on social media over the weekend and today the Department confirmed the pictures were taken at one of their facilities.

Smalberger added that management went ahead with the female dancers despite the department's instructions.

Smalberger assured reporters that "no taxpayer money [was] involved in this 'entertainment.'" So, what's the big deal?

"Therefore, there was a clear breach of the security plan that was provided for the event as well as other relevant policies and procedures".
