newsNews24 reports that a correctional services official at the Losperfontein Correctional Centre in Brits committed suicide on Monday after pictures of her kissing an inmate surfaced on social media.  

Department of Correctional Services (DCS) regional manager Mandla Mkabela said in a statement that the department was shocked and grieved by the incident.  He said a team of senior managers and counsellors had been dispatched to the facility to provide the necessary support to fellow personnel.  Mkabela, however, still condemned the conduct of the official seen in the photo and said it was disturbing and strictly prohibited.
