UDM celebrates employment of 2 000 correctional services recruits

Published on

The UDM has contributed to helping the Department of Correctional Services learnership graduates secure employment, as 2 000 new graduates will be joining and contributing to the department from August 2021.

The United Democratic Movement (UDM) celebrated a victory in helping in the fight against unemployment. On Wednesday, 30 June 2021, leader of the UDM, Bantu Holomisa issued a media statement on the success of the party’s pressure on the Department of Correctional Services to employ 2 000 of its learnership graduates, of which the Ministry of Justice and Correctional Services has complied.

Holomisa stated,  “We are happy to hear that the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Ronald Lamola and the National Commissioner of Correctional Services Arthur Fraser have woken up to the emerging tragedy these recruits were faced with and announced that Correctional Services will absorb the entire cohort of trainees, with the final group entering employment on Sunday, 1 August 2021.”

Holomis expressed that he hopes that the government has learnt some valuable lessons, and that this type of employment disaster will not be repeated. Holomisa also noted that the recruits suffered immense damage as the heads of their families, with debts piling up, all while suffering from mental health issues and stress due to the department’s inefficiencies and inattention. The UDM wished the new recruits the best of luck in their new posts within the department.
