First it was a KFC treat and now prisoners have just been given an otherwise extra ordinary treat of strippers. A pretty good spark to a South African public outrage considering howthey reacted on the KFC meals fed to Gauteng prisoners not so long ago.
The pictures were posted by a Facebook user on Sunday‚ along with the caption: “NOW LOOK what is happening in prison…This is JHB Medium-B Prison where the department invited P_orn into prison…is this allowed MARA?”.
Department of Correctional Services (DCS) spokesperson Logan Maistry said on Monday the department was aware of the images. Maistry said that he was at the prison to “ascertain the facts” and would later hold a press briefing to address the issue.
Comments on the post ranged between those of outrage to admiration.
Facebooker Nana asked if it was a joke‚ while Mnyepz Gp replied “Why is it wrong? Why is it a joke? Why is it nonsense?” Another user Benni commented: ” Eish! I wish get arrested‚ I never experience this such life”.
People have been very vocal about what they term to be the preferential treatment of prisoners. A few months ago pictures of prisoners receiving KFC caused outrage online as well.
DJ Fresh shared the post on his Twitter account‚ commenting “GUYS!! Kante tronko is nice like this??? Only this missing is #FreshBreakfast on their radio!”
We cannot post the video here because of it’s content.
