PRETORIA - A riot broke out at Pretoria's Kgosi Mampuru II Prison on Sunday; officials say inmates attacked warders with makeshift weapons.
The prisoners say they're unhappy with how the facility deals with issues around parole.
The warders used dogs‚ electric shields and pepper spray to contain the situation.
Correctional Services specialised units were called in to help quash the riot.
Two weeks ago the justice department received a memorandum from prisoners.
It detailed complaints of overcrowding, parole issues and poor food.
