Dept spends R1.5m on TVs

Cape Town – The correctional services department has spent over R1.5m to install 50 television sets in the new Kimberley Prison, at a cost of R31 021 each.

In written reply to a parliamentary question by James Selfe of the Democratic Alliance, Correctional Services Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula said the contract was awarded to Sizwe Business Networking.

The total cost of the installation contract was R1 551 049 for 50 television sets to be delivered.

The intention was to complete installation by June 10, but a delay in sourcing industrial brackets led to the completion of installation on June 18, she said.
