Security enhanced in all prisons

The government has enhanced security in all prisons across the country to ensure safety of inmates and prison officers.

Correctional Services Principal Secretary Safina Kwekwe Tsungu says the move is aimed at taming prison breaks, such as the one witnessed when three terrorist convicts escaped from the Kamiti Maximum Prison in November last year. Speaking after a tour of the Malindi Maximum and Malindi Women’s Prison today, Tsungu said the Prisons Department had kicked off a 100-day Rapid Results Initiative (RRI) in all prison facilities country-wide. The PS said the government had set aside Sh800 million to construct security walls, complete development projects and boost prisons industries country-wide, projects she hoped would be completed within the next 100-days.
