PRISONERS at the Boksburg prison in Ekurhuleni were injured during a fight which broke out between them and the prison warders.
The scuffle followed after the prisoners had lodged a complaint about their conditions in the prison.
The inmates apparently refused to go back to their cells after handing over a memorandum and being addressed.
Though prison officials says no violence was used against the prisoners, families of the inmates have come out fuming claiming this is untrue.
Speaking to the Peoples Paper, a teary Thandi Mahlangu (56), mother of one of the inmates who was severely beaten up, says her son was brutally beaten up until he was unconscious.
He now has eleven stitches in his head
“I demand justice to what they have done to my son, they could have killed him.
