Cape Town - Former Hard Livings gang leader Rashied Staggie's day parole has been reinstated, the correctional services department said on Friday.

Staggie's day parole would be from March 17 until September 17, spokesman Manelisi Wolela said in a statement.

“His day parole comes with strict conditions that will include thorough supervision, agreement to electronic tagging and tracking, non-contact with victims and gang members, among others.”

Staggie was granted parole on September 23 but it was revoked in December because he met members of gangs and made unauthorised visits.

He was sentenced in 2003 to 15 years in prison on charges of kidnapping and rape. In 2004 he received another 13 years for gun theft from a police armoury. The sentences ran concurrently, and he served 11 years before his release on day parole in September.

Wolela said Staggie would be on full parole from September, 18, until the end of his sentence on March, 23, 2017.

“Placement on parole is an internationally accepted practice that forms part of the total rehabilitation programme in correcting offending behaviour and in managing inmate populations.

“Parole is an incentive for continuous good behaviour,” he said.
