As the Department of Correctional Services continues to probe  recent prison riots, Gift Ngobeni of the Wits Justice Project speaks to an inmate about the riots and the conditions in prison. He also speaks to  a warder about excessive use of force in prisons. The report was broadcast on the Law Show on VoW FM (the Voice of Wits). The names of the sources have been changed to protect their identity.

Listen to Ngobeni’s report.
