Pretoria - Convicted killer Clive Derby-Lewis has been attacked for a second time in prison, the correctional services department said on Monday.

Derby-Lewis was attacked by another prisoner at the Kgosi Mampuru Correctional Centre on Sunday, spokesman Manelisi Wolela said.

“The Gauteng region of correctional services has launched an investigation… The injury on his back caused by a glass used by an offender is described as minor and was treated at the local centre clinic,” he said.

In February, Derby-Lewis was attacked with a spoon by a prisoner. He suffered lacerations on the head and hand. - Sapa
