The C Max prison in Pretoria announced this morning that it will be replacing the prison’s easy-open locks.
According to prison management, this decision was taken because hundreds of prisoners escape from this “maximum security prison every year”.
Management did not know all along how prisoners kept on dissapearing.
They just found out recently that the prison locks they currently have mostly use a common key, one which according to an evaluation, most prisoners have a copy of. Making it simple for prisoners to walk in and out of the prison whenever they want.
Many prisoners have managed to walk out of the prison without even breaking a nail over the last couple of years. And they did not come back since.
