WATCH: Inside South Africa's secure prison



JOHANNESBURG – Ebongweni Correctional Centre in Kokstad, KwaZulu-Natal is South Africa’s most secure prison.

It’s the country’s only super-maximum jail housing hardcore criminals.

eNCA’s Siphamandla Goge gained exclusive access to the facility.



Inmates are under strict surveillance in the high tech Ebongweni Ultra-Maximum Correctional Centre.

They spend 23-hours in solitary confinement.                                    

The late Mozambican national, Ananias Mathe, known as the Houdini of C-Max tried to break out of Ebongweni.

Correctional Services and prison authorities claim the prison softens hardened criminals.
