WordPress never generates category links like that.

The likelihood is that you have a plugin (or possibly a theme) making that
change. Some SEO plugins will remove he category prefix.

Try disabling your plugins one by one and testing to see whether it fixes
things. If the plugin is particularly badly behaved you may need to save
the permalink settings after de-activating each plugin.
