Kitwe Businessmen Fund Kamfinsa Correctional Facility Facelift

A team of businessmen in Kitwe led by Power Tools and Bus Services proprietor Mbachi Nkwazi has successfully funded the construction of 8 dormitories at Kamfinsa Correctional Facility to accommodate about 600 inmates.

Late last year after visiting Kamfinsa Correctional facility, Kitwe District Commissioner Binwell Mpundu engaged businessmen in the district to help realise the change from prisons to correctional facility at Kamfinsa.

The facility has for a long time been faced with congestion because of the initial holding capacity that cannot sustain the current number of inmates going beyond 2,300.

As a way of completing government efforts to make correctional facilities, the business community in Kitwe district responded positively through corporate social responsibility to fund the construction of the 8 dormitories and about two boreholes.

Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has commissioned the dormitories during the International Day of Prayer and Action for Inmates in Zambia.

Kampyongo further announced that government has procured 18 motor vehicles for the correctional facility to address transport challenges.

The Shiwang’andu Parliamentarian has since commended the gesture exhibited by the business community in Kitwe on the construction of the 8 dormitories to supplement government efforts in improving infrastructure in correction facilities.
