INMATES are set to be reunited with their families as the Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Service (ZPCS) holds the family week from the 15th to the 19th of this month.

On the given dates, families whose relatives and friends are in prison will have a chance to visit them in various parts of the country provided they are fully vaccinated.

We are calling on people to visit their families in prison. This is a chance for them to bond and update each other and it’s also part of our rehabilitation process. As long as you are fully vaccinated you are welcome.

“You can also bring some food. I would also like to call upon husbands whose wives are incarcerated to visit their wives. These people rarely get visitors and it is so sad,” said Commissioner-General Moses Chihobvu.

During the family week gates will be open between 8am and 3pm.
