The South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU) is calling on the government to immediately terminate the G4S contract to run the Mangaung Correctional facility.

This comes after convicted rapist and murderer Thabo Bester broke out of Jail last year.

G4S private security company is in a 25-year public-private partnership with the government, with its contract expected to run until 2026.

SAFTU General Secretary Zwelinzima Vavi says they believe there are certain basic services that government should be providing directly to the public without using the private sector.
