Democratic Alliance is pleased that the catering contract for correctional
facilities will finally be put out to tender properly.
The DA have long argued that this step was
necessary to ensure that the correct tender process is followed, instead of the
Department of Correctional Services administratively renewing problematic
Shadow Minister of Correctional Services James Selfe said the DA is delighted
that the Department of Correctional services is putting out the controversial
catering contract on tender but it misses the point he says.
Selfe said the point is that inmates should
cook for themselves, they should grow vegetables for themselves and they should
become self sufficient.
Selfe says the DA hopes the department of
correctional services will rethink the whole concept of outsourcing catering so
that the department can arrive at a point where prisoners work because prisons
work where prisoners work.
