Suicide is the most common type of unnatural death in prisons, with the majority occurring in Gauteng.
That's according to a report that has been released by the Judicial Inspectorate for Correctional Services.
It shows that overcrowding remains a serious problem in South African prisons.
There's also a lack of care for prisoners who suffer from mental illnesses.
