Correctional Services Acting National Commissioner Ms Nontsikilelo Jolingana says the situation at Groenpunt is now under control and police are now investigating the matter.

 This follows when a unit was set on fire by inmates Monday in the maximum security section of the Groenpunt Correctional Centre in Deneysville in the Free State.

Nontsikilelo Jolingana explains that as a department they want to say that they cannot allow anarchy in any form or shape that it comes in.

Jolingana adds the correctional centres belong to government and therefore government will take total and full control of such centres.

 Jolingana said she wants to assure the South African Public that the situation at the Groenpunt Correctional Centre is now back to normal, they have addressed the offenders in both units, have taken some of their complaints and as a department they will lodge an investigation into the whole incident.
