A student warder was fatally stabbed with a kitchen knife in a suspected gang initiation at Pollsmoor Prison last month.
The student was stabbed three times in the neck and shoulder on 28 December. A prisoner has been charged with the murder of the 32-year-old warder.
It is believed that the student warder was taken to the Constantiaberg Medi-Clinic and was released on January 1, but his wounds became infected could possibly have been the cause of death.
According to a daily paper the attack occurred just days after a senior warder was also stabbed in a prison attack.
