New correctional legislation brought about a need to change the manner in which the parole system in South African correctional centres operated. However, due to the coexistence of two sets of applicable legislation, the former system has remained an integral part of the "new" parole system. In the current South African criminal justice system decisions with regard to parole are regarded in a serious light. This article explores decisions taken in respect of parole at correctional centres in the most densely populated province in South Africa in terms of inmate and general population, namely Gauteng, and comes to certain conclusions regarding the standard of management in such cases.
