CONGESTION in correctional facilities will soon be a thing of the past, Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo has assured.
He has said that Government is determined to build more correctional facilities to improve the welfare of inmates countrywide.
He said this at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Kabwata yesterday during the commemoration of the International Day of Prayer for Inmates.
“This has been achieved through public private partnership. Under this initiative, two ultra-modern correctional facilities are being constructed in Mwembeshi and works have reached an advanced stage,” he said.
Mr Kampyongo said once the two correctional facilities are completed, the capacity will be increased by 3,000, and that this will create sufficient space for better living standards for inmates http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
