In a dramatic turn of events, Police officers in Kabwe have now instituted investigations against Prison Warders linked to the brutal murder of inmates at “Hell on Earth” Mukobeko Maximum Prison.
According to sources at Kabwe Central police division office, the station’s criminal investigation officer has visited Kabwe Keneral Hospital and Mukobeko Maximum Security prison in relation to the matter.
The named officers laughed at Government’s persistence that no prisoner died as a result of beating.
Meanwhile eight bodies from the security prison are still lying at Kabwe General hospital awaiting postmortem.
The latest body was taken to the mortuary on Monday 4th march 2013, bringing the total number of those killed to nine.
One Henry Mwami Mpanga has since been buried after relatives identified him.
