"It's chaos." One dead as prison gangs clash at Leeuwkop

Correctional Services spokesman Singabakho Nxumalo said one prisoner had died after his throat was slit with a bottle and another prisoner was seriously injured.

“The deceased suffered serious stabbed wounds on his neck. Such conduct by offenders is unacceptable. This incident has been reported to the SAPS and an investigation is currently underway.

“The department will also launch its own internal investigation which shall determine if this was gang-related or not‚ and will take firm action against those implicated.”

He said additional officials had been deployed to monitor the situation.

Debbie Fourie‚ whose husband is imprisoned in Leeuwkop‚ said she was terrified for her husband’s safety.

Fourie‚ who runs a support group for women whose husbands are imprisoned in the prison‚ said they were terrified for their loved ones.

“We have heard‚ through our communication networks‚ that it’s chaos. The fight broke out in one cell but has spread to others. We are receiving reports of prisoners being badly injured and killed.”

She said from what the husbands of two in the group had said‚ there was more than one person killed.

“Prisons need to be safe not places where gangs rule.”

This is a developing story.
