“It is considered impolite to speak ill of the dead. However, in the case of Mr. Mathe, society is now free from a dangerous and malevolent individual,” asserted the Democratic Alliance (DA) party.
To the party, the death of Ananias Mathe has brought to an end, a chapter for SA prison system.
Reports have it that the infamous criminal incarcerated at the ultra-secure C-Max prison in Kokstad KZN was having digestive problems and was even taken to the hospital several times.

The digestive issues reportedly gave him severe constipation and made it impossible for him to urinate. As learned, he died at the King Edward VIII Hospital.
Commenting on Mathe’s death, DA said:
“The death in prison of the notorious criminal and escape artist, Ananias Mathe, brings to an end a chapter for our prison system.
Mr Mathe was a serial rapist, robber and murderer and was serving a life sentence in the Kokstad C Max prison. (He) will be best remembered for his many escapes from prisons, including an escape from the Pretoria C Max prison.
He was supposed to have used Vaseline to push himself through a small window, and then to have used a rope made of sheets and blankets to scale down one wall and up another. On another occasion, while awaiting trial, he was discovered with a dangerous weapon.”
DA argued that “these incidents point not to Mr. Mathe’s ingenuity or Houdini-like abilities, but rather to the depressing reality that offenders with large amounts of money made from the proceeds of crimes can bribe their way out of most situations.
“It is a tribute to the Kokstad C Max staff, and the prison’s security measures, that he was unable to escape from that prison,” DA added and proclaimed that SA is now free from a dangerous and malevolent individual.
