PROCUREMENT OF MATRESSES, BUNKER BEDS AND BLANKETS ELATES PRISCCA”
24th January 2023
For Immediate Release
The procurement and distribution of mattresses, bunker beds and blankets by the Government shall not only enhance the Zambia Correctional Service (ZCS) human rights profile but would also improve production because the Correctional Service will have a cadre of labour services that is healthier.
This will also speed up the process of actualizing and operationalizing the paradigm shift from Punitive to the Correctional model as enshrined in the Correctional Act No. 37.
We are therefore elated and grateful over this noble gesture by the Zambian Government through the ZCS Commissioner General Mr. Frederick S. Chilukutu, which does not leave anyone behind, especially the most vulnerable in correctional cells.
