PRISON security is once again in the spotlight after a fight between two inmates at Qalakabusha prison ended in a death last week.
According to a police statement, two prisoners who shared a cell got into a quarrel.
One of the convicts, Sibongiseni Xulu (25), severely beat up his fellow inmate and stabbed him with a makeshift weapon.
Six warders attempted to separate the men, however Xulu could not be subdued and he even attacked the wardens, claiming he was acting in self-defence.
Xulu was killed during the struggle and the matter is currently under investigation.
Xulu was serving a life sentence for rape.
