CENTRAL PRISON FACILITY CONGESTED-RAMAKATSA

Maseru, Oct 11 – Chairperson of the Law and Public Safety Cluster Mr. Mothofela Ramakatsa says the Central Prison Facility is overcrowded with inmates, lacking food and clothing.

The Law and Public Safety Cluster members had a meeting with the Facility’s management at the Central Prison’s premises on Wednesday.

Chairperson of the Cluster Mr. Ramakatsa told the Agency on Wednesday that they first had a briefing from the Central Prison’s management where they were told that the budget for the facility has been declining lately despite the number of inmates ever increasing.

He said this on its own poses a serious challenge on shortage of food, clothing and space for accommodating the new inmates.
