Jail guard who had intercourse with an inmate is to be disciplined

The department said the incident happened at the Ncome Correctional Center in KwaZulu-Natal.

JOHANNESBURG – The Department of Correctional Services said Wednesday it was horrified, embarrassed and gutted after an officer and inmate were caught having sex on camera.

The department said the incident happened at the Ncome Correctional Center in KwaZulu-Natal.

Photos and videos of the inmate and the correctional officer in passionate embrace are circulating online.

Spokesman Singabakho Nxumalo said, “Sexual activity between inmates and prison officials is shameful and that can never be attributed to what is expected of our officials.”

A statement from the department said that both would be disciplined.

“The officer concerned has been identified and disciplined immediately. The inmate has also been disciplined. Corrective officers are expected to adhere to a code of conduct and despicable sexual activity with inmates should never be tolerated.”

The department also urged those who own the video to stop sharing the video.
