A Prisoner walking to freedom?

Kabwe has been hit by a spate of violent attacks on people by some prisoners who have recently been pardoned or released after serving their long jail sentences because the prison authorities can repatriate them to their places of origin.

The attacks are mostly being perpetuated in Bwacha, Makululu and Mukobeko compounds where robbers ambush people, beat them up and grab any little things and money from them, two of the attacks have been traced to recently released prisoners and people are now fearing to move in the night.

Kabwe is home to three prisons namely Kalonga, Mpima and Mukobeko Maximum prison where hardcore criminals are jailed but instead of preparing repatriation packages after the sentence the inmates are just released indiscriminately and resort to crime as means of survival.

Recently one old woman of Mukobeko survived a rape attempt by a prisoner after she squeezed the perpetrators private parts.
