AT a service at Ebongweni C-Max Prison in Kokstad on Tuesday, the death of correctional service staff members was highlighted.

Between 2016 and 2017 six staff members died in accidents not related to work.

Although no one died on duty, car accidents after work and illness were cited as the major cause of the deaths. The Department of Correctional Services Kokstad management area commissioner, Eric Mfenqe said burying a staff member hurts.

“The prayer was organised by staff members to invite God to protect our staff and uplift morale,” said Mfeqe.

The prayer service was also attended by pastors.

Ebongweni C-Max Prison used to be “home” to the infamous escape artist Ananias Mathe, who died after an illness in December.
