A video went viral, showing the warder kissing the inmate in what appears to be an office inside the prison before they get half-naked and start having sex.
According to Nxumalo, there is a code of conduct for inmates.
"This particular inmate is doing a life sentence, but he had been classified as a medium," says Nxumalo.
"One of the things that will happen, the inmate will get reclassified, meaning going back into a maximum category." There are many privileges that the inmate will lose, says Nxumalo.
He says they are looking to get a hold of the cellphone used to record the incident.
