Prison warder commits suicide after her relationship with inmate is exposed
A correctional service official in Losperfontein prison, South Africa, has committed suicide after her intimate moments with an inmate surfaced online.
SA Correctional Services spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo said it is unclear how the pictures were shared and who shared them.
He further stated that in the case of the inmate involved, an investigation is underway to indicate the violations and to recommend sanctions.
“The Department of Correctional Services (DCS) has been made aware of images involving an official and inmate, from Losperfontein Correctional Centre, in an intimate position circulating on social media,” Nxumalo said.
“As this is disturbing and strictly prohibited, the department condemns this type of behaviour in the strongest possible terms.
