For many, prison is or should be a place where people are not only removed from society but are punished for all their wrong doings. So, when a picture of prisoners having a braai behind bars started trending on social media, there was an uproar of conflicting views about the matter.

Twitter user, Given Ngomeni posted pictures of prisoners, in their orange prison uniform, having stacking loads of meat on a braai stand alongside a prison warder in his own brown uniform. His question, “What's your take on this this issue of prisoners having a braai” sparked a debate that has lasted a couple of days on Twitter.
