Mtangani GK Prison prioritized for expansion

The  Mtangani GK Prison in Malindi  will be among the first prisons to be expanded in the countrywide  GK Prisons’ decongestion plans, the Commissioner  General for Prison, Wycliffe  Ogola has said.

According  to Ogola, the prison  will get first priority for expansion following its unprecedented congestion levels

occasioned  by  its upgrading into a maximum prison.

He  also noted  the upgrading of Malindi Court to a High Court  which  serves Kilifi, Tana River and Lamu counties was  also a  factor in the increase of prisoners at Mtangani Prison.

He  revealed that money has already been set aside for the expansion of the prison and the works will start next financial 2019/2020.

“I am going round the whole Country inspecting the accommodation condition of the prisoners for necessary action,” he  said
