Correctional Services Minister Sibusiso Ndebele has commended the Department of Correctional Services for intensifying its efforts towards ensuring that prisons shift to institutions of new beginnings. 

Ndebele said it is important to deliver justice for victims and ensure that offenders make restitution both to society for their crimes, and leave correctional centres with better skills and prospects. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Logan Maistry said DCS officials in the Western Cape are undertaking a community outreach programme this week, in the southern Cape, where DCS is also donating state-of-the-art wheelchairs to 54 disabled children, women and men.

Maistry added that the 26th June, in Ha Mutsha in Limpopo, ex-offenders were handed business starter packs to start their own businesses including welding, building, scaffolding, carpentry, sewing, plumbing and car washing.
