Comm-Gen Zimondi wished the three officers a speedy recovery as the sister-in charge explained to him the condition of each patient.
“This one attempted to commit suicide by downing pesticide following a domestic violence dispute but is responding well to treatment,” she was heard talking to Comm-Gen Zimondi Comm-Gen Zimondi urged business community and churches to come on board and assist them saying the hospital is in dire need of medicines and medical equipment for it to remain fully functional.
“The role played by our prison office is crucial and they need a collective responsibility in assisting them so that they discharge their duties well; said Comm-Gen Zimondi.
“With the number of inmates increasing by the day, the officers face challenges in managing the overpopulated prisons especially this time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“There is a need for churches, business community and individuals to partner us in addressing the inmate’s and officers’ needs,” said Comm-Gen Zimondi.
