PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu wants the Zambia Correctional Service (ZCS) to come up with a Corrections Act that will meet the aspirations of Zambians because the current one is punitive and hardens offenders.
Mr Lungu is concerned that the current Act is retributive in nature and has led to an increase in escapes from correctional facilities.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
