On the record: Interview with Frikkie Venter, G4S Managing Director: Care and Justice Services

  • C Gould


The Minister of Correctional Services recently made it known that the department is reviewing its policy on public-private partnerships (PPPs) for prisons.1 Currently there are two private prisons in South Africa, and the government has decided to build another four. However, for reasons that are not quite clear, there remains a great deal of controversy surrounding PPP prisons. One thing about which there is no disagreement, however, is that services at the existing two PPP prisons are of extremely high quality. Chandré Gould spoke to Frikkie Venter, G4S Managing Director in South Africa, about public-privatepartnerships for prisons.
