Yet an­other em­bar­rass­ment in SA

The Star Early Edition - - LETTERS - Tom Mh­langa

JUST when we thought our coun­try has dealt with enough em­bar­rass­ment in re­cent weeks, we woke up to yet an­other dis­grace­ful mo­ment in the his­tory

of our cor­rec­tional ser­vice cen­tres.

It is rather out­ra­geous how strip­pers can be al­lowed to en­ter­tain pris­on­ers, some of whom, by the way, are sex of­fend­ers. Some of them are fac­ing or serv­ing life in prison.

Should we find com­fort that of­fi­cials re­spon­si­ble were sus­pended?

Def­i­nitely NO. They should have been fired right on the spot for the man­ner in which they turned that prison into a strip club.

What will be next? Re­duc­ing our pris­ons into broth­els?

Our coun­try has been re­duced to a ba­nana repub­lic many times by those we put our trust in. The im­age of this coun­try has been ru­ined and it seems like the only thing that is go­ing to save us is moral re­gen­er­a­tion. Braam­fontein
