CHOMBA MUSIKA, Lusaka
GOVERNMENT has banned taking of food for inmates in correctional facilities countrywide to prevent the spread of cholera to reformatories.

Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo told a media briefing yesterday that Government fears that people from cholera ravaged townships could take contaminated food to their incarcerated relatives.
“No food from outside correctional facilities, whether from visitors or officers’ quarters, shall be allowed in correctional facili-ties,” Mr Kampyongo said.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
