Motloung explained that Magudumana had been receiving threats of violence and had reported them to the relevant authorities, but no action had been taken.

The tensions between Magudumana and the other inmates involved in the assault stemmed from singing and prayer sessions within the cell. According to Motloung, previous issues had arisen between Magudumana and these inmates.

Motloung emphasized the need for his client to be placed in a cell where her safety would not be compromised. He also stated his intention to file a complaint with the South African Human Rights Commission to ensure Magudumana’s protection.

Singabakho Nxumalo, the spokesperson for the Department of Correctional Services, stated that they had not yet received any complaints regarding the assault from Magudumana or her legal representatives.

Nxumalo also disputed claims that mentally challenged inmates were housed with other inmates, as they fell under the jurisdiction of the Department of Health.
