Samia demands sweeping reforms in the prisons service

PRESIDENT Samia Suluhu Hassan has demanded sweeping reforms in the Prison Service that will strengthen justice and reduce recidivism from inmate’s initial intake to his or her return to the community.

“There is a good governance crisis in the prison,” she said in Dodoma on Monday shortly after administering the oath of integrity to the newly appointed Commissioner General of Prisons Service (CGP) Mzee Ramadhan Nyamka.

She instructed the CGP to ensure justice to inmates, highlighting that they too are human beings who need clean air, clothing, and food “not a pile of punishments.”

The President was also concerned that some convicted criminals who receive presidential pardon have been reoffending, and that the number has been on the rise.

“This simply means you are not doing your job,” she said, demanding the new reforms to also provide evidence-based rehabilitation strategies.
