As everyone probably knows by now, any individual who breaks the laws of the constitution of South Africa, he/she will be sent to prison, by fire and by force.
Normally those who are found guilty of a crime a sentenced to jail by a judge. That judge doesn't just come up with a random number to sentence the culprit.
The judge normally sentence the culprit after looking at different dynamics that are surrounding the case of the law breaker.
When the judge finally decides on the number of years that culprit should be sent to prison, he/she will either be sent to a public or a private prison.
Contrary to what most people think or would like to think, prisoners are allowed to choose a prison of their choice but a judge usually sends them to any prison which he/she sees fit. The judge can either choose a public prison(prison owned by the government) or a privately owned prison.
Believe it or not, in South Africa, all the prisons are owned by the government but only two prisons aren't, they are privately owned, check them out below:
01. Mangaung Prison
02. Kutama Sinthumule Correctional Centre
