TRENDING: Watch the video that got two of the Waterkloof 4 re-arrested for allegedly smuggling alcohol and having a party inside prison. WATCH

Johannesburg – Correctional services says it can hold the two Waterkloof killers who were re-arrested after a video emerged of them partying in prison, for 72 hours.

A video of the party was posted on YouTube showing Frikkie du Preez and Christoff Becker allegedly drinking, and using a cellphone in a cell in Pretoria's Kgosi Mampuru Prison.

They were freed on parole on 11 February along with Reinach Tiedt and Gert van Schalkwyk. 

"The department takes very serious the allegations carried in the media about the smuggling of alcohol, having a party and covering the party with illegally possessed cameras or cellphones, " correctional services spokesperson Manelisi Wolela said.

"Two of the Waterkloof 4 allegedly responsible for smuggling alcohol and having a party inside the centre, have been re-arrested while an investigation is underway over the next 72 hours."

Wolela said the regional commissioner of Gauteng instituted the investigation on Sunday.

He explained that the Correctional Services Act made provision for a precautionary re-detention until investigations are completed.

Officials and managers on duty will be questioned in addition to the parolees, Wolela said.

He said the investigation would involve watching the video, interviewing the two parolees and speaking to those responsible for security on the day.

Earlier, Wolela declined to give details on possible sanctions the men faced, saying the process should be allowed to run its course.

He said penalties for breaking prison rules could include being recalled back to prison.
