Deputy Minister Makwetla to hand over wheelchairs to the community of Hammanskraal

Justice and Correctional Services Deputy Minister, Thabang Makwetla will on Tuesday, 16 April 2019, hand over wheelchairs to people living with disability in Hammanskraal.

The wheelchairs are assembled by inmates, as part of their rehabilitation and reintegration efforts towards repairing the harm caused against society. One of the primary missions of corrections is to develop and implement correctional programmes that balance the concepts of deterrence, incapacitation and rehabilitation for individuals in correctional facilities.

The handing over of these wheelchairs is thus part of many interventions by the department across the country.
