Johannesburg - Former Hard Livings gang leader Rashied Staggie's day parole has been reinstated, the correctional services department says.

Staggie's day parole would be from 17 March to 17 September, said spokesperson Manelisi Wolela in a statement on Friday.

"His day parole comes with strict conditions that will include, among others, thorough supervision, agreement to electronic tagging and tracking and non-contact with victims and gang members".

Staggie was granted parole on 23 September, but it was revoked in December because he met members of gangs and made unauthorised visits.

Day parole

In 2003 he was sentenced to 15 years in prison on charges of kidnapping and rape. In 2004 he received another 13 years for gun theft from a police armoury.

The sentences ran concurrently and he served 11 years before his release on day parole in September.

Wolela said Staggie would be on full parole from 18 September until the end of his sentence on 23 March 2017.

"Placement on parole is an internationally accepted practice that forms part of the total rehabilitation programme in correcting offending behaviour and in managing inmate populations.

"Parole is an incentive for continuous good behaviour," he said.
