The affordable education loan option
Cape Town - Former gang boss Rashied Staggie tasted two hours of freedom before he was back in Pollsmoor Prison on Monday.
He was released on day parole, which allows him to be outside of prison to work and to visit his family every Sunday. But after a quick visit to his home in Salt River and a stop at the Blue Route Mall in Tokai for an orientation session, he was back in his cell.
Correctional services chief deputy commissioner James Smalberger said Staggie’s day parole was cut short as he had no formal job offers. Although pastor Ivan Waldeck said Staggie would work full-time as a motivational speaker at his church, Smalberger said there had been no formal offer.
