(iii) After much effort on our part the Prisons Department installed "study desks". The next morning on inspection Kathy who had not yet used his desk complained that the slope was too steep and that books kept sliding down. Naude in his brusk manner ordered the accompanying warder to open the cell and asked Kathy for a book. Naude plonked it on the desk and nothing happened. He asked for another and plonked it on top of the first. And still nothing happened. After placing 4 books one top of the other and still not a single book fell off Naude stampted out of the cell shouting "There's nothing wrong with these desks", leaving a very sheepish Kathy behind.

(iv) After lock up (about 4,30 am) Wilfred Brutus went to sleep immediatly having had a hard day at work. He awoke with the bell at 8 pm under the impression that is was the morning bell (5.30 am). He got up, washed, dressed, folded blankets and stood around in his cell awaiting inspection. After a while, realising that the section was still unusually quiet he called across to a fellow prisoner who told him that it was just after 8 pm.

(v) Sylvester Skota had just been allowed to buy a mirror which he hung up in his cell against the wall. That evening while smoling an illegal cigarette behind his cel door he felt he was being watched. Then looking across into his mirror on the wall he saw the warder looking at him in the mirror. He had to do some fast talking to avoid being charged.

(G) Re Mike's torture episode brought out another face of Aucamp.
