DCS appalled by distribution of Former President Zuma photos on social media
A criminal case has been opened after a camera SD card, containing images of the Former President, Jacob Zuma, being admitted at a correctional centre was stolen. It has come to the attention of the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) that images were stolen from a camera of the official who had been assigned to take photos for institutional filing purposes.
The SD card was removed from the camera and the matter is highly sensitive and is being investigated by both SAPS and DCS. The official involved has also been contemplated with a suspension notice.
The first aspect of the internal investigation thus far has revealed that this SD card may have clandestinely been shared with a known broadcaster. The department will be approaching the relevant institutions for further action.
We are appalled by the distribution of these images on social media and we urge people to refrain from sharing them.
DCS condemns in strongest possible terms such action and will leave no stone unturned in bringing to book those behind it.
