Give ex-convicts a second chance: ZPCS

09/02/2017

The Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) is struggling to reintegrate back to society prisoners who committed heinous crimes such as rape against their relatives and communities.

ZPCS acting rehabilitation coordinator for Bulawayo, principal correctional officer Mr Risian Chikwetu told participants at a workshop organised by Padare/Enkundleni Men’s Forum in Bulawayo on Thursday that failure to reintegrate prisoners has created repeat offenders as society has shut the doors for ex-convicts.
