The number has reduced compared to one hundred and twenty inmates that were occupying the same cell last year.

Prisons Service Commissioner, Percy Chato says congestion is still a big challenge that the Zambian prisons are faced with.

Mr. Chato said this when he officially received three hundred blankets and mattresses from a Christian organization known as Alpha Zambia.
