Waterkloof jailhouse video

2014-02-16 18:37

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 - Frikkie du Preez and Christoff Becker, two of the so-called Waterkloof Four, are working in the bakery of the Kgosi-Mampuru prison in Pretoria and are being held in a communal cell, Rapport reported on Sunday.

Correctional services department spokesperson Manelisi Wolela told the newspaper that it was too early to say how the pair's rehabilitation was progressing.

Rapport said its investigations discovered that Becker now had to queue to use a payphone - as is the normal prison rule.

Becker and du Preez had their parole revoked at the end of last month after a video emerged that showed the two having a party in jail. At the time, footage was released of Du Preez and Becker drinking alcohol and using a cellphone.

Wolela told Rapport that four prison guards would be attending disciplinary hearings within a month for their part in the incident.

He said that recent raids in the cells at the prison had led to the seizure of 86 mobile phones, a computer and hard drive.

Becker, Du Preez, Gert van Schalkwyk, and Reinach Tiedt were released at the beginning of February after being jailed for beating a homeless man to death in Pretoria in 2001.
