Cape Town - A Western Cape prison warder was arrested on Wednesday for possession of 50 Mandrax tablets, said the department of correctional services.
“He was suspected of continuously picking up the drugs after they had been dropped at a public toilet of a local filling station,” said spokesman Simphiwe Xako.
The warder was an employee of the Goodwood management area.
Western Cape regional commissioner Delekile Klaas commended the arrest.
“We also want to sound a very strong warning to all our officials to refrain from any criminal activities, as this is not in keeping with the aspirations of the White Paper on corrections, which calls for the ideal correctional official,” said Klaas. - Sapa
