tshwane thumb100 News24 reports that officials of the Department of Justice and Correctional Services were expected to return to work on Tuesday as the Poyntons Building had been given the green light to resume occupation.  

"The emergency services department of the City of Tshwane has rescinded the prohibition notice on the head office of the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) at Poyntons Building in Tshwane, with immediate effect," the department's Logan Maistry said in a statement on Monday.  The building, which houses the Department of Correctional Services head office, was shut down by Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga last Wednesday on the basis that it was unsafe.  "The emergency services department conducted an inspection on 16 September 2018 on the requirements as agreed to during the onsite meeting on 13 September 2018, and is subsequently satisfied that critical requirements were implemented as agreed to," Maistry explained.  Justice and Correctional Services Minister Michael Masutha said in a statement that he was also satisfied that safety concerns around the building had been addressed.
