Zimbabwe, Botswana To Swap Prisoners

Zimbabwe, Botswana To Swap Prisoners

Zimbabwe and Botswana are set to sign a Memorandum of Understanding, that will, among other things, allow prisoner exchange where Zimbabwean nationals serving in Botswana jails to complete their sentences back home if they so wish, and vice versa.

There are about 400 Zimbabweans serving in different jails in Botswana while about 10 Botswana nationals are serving in Zimbabwe.

This was revealed by Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) Commissioner-General Moses Chihobvu on Saturday.

Chihobvu was speaking in an interview with State media after addressing ZPCS recruits and the visiting Commissioner of the Botswana Prison Service Dinah Marathe and her delegation at Ntabazinduna Training Depot. He said:

I feel very happy about this exchange programme that we are going to introduce.

I wish we could speed up the Memorandum of Understanding because it is going to benefit us as the correctional services in Zimbabwe and also the Botswana Prison Service because we are going to have exchange programmes and try to modify some of the training services that we are going to be doing.

The MOU includes the transfer of inmates from either country, we are looking at our inmates who are Zimbabweans, if they want to finish their sentence here in Zimbabwe, they can be transferred.

If they do not want to, they will serve in Botswana.

Commissioner Marathe together with her seven-member delegation has toured various prisons in the country and was on Sunday expected to visit Khami Maximum Prison and Anju Prison farm in Nyamandlovu.

i have to agree with South Africans sometimes. There is a lot of illegal foreigners in South Africa. South Africa is not a super economy that can accomodate for more foreigners and immigrants. It's not like these foreigners create companies that help locals, 99% of these foreigners (more often than not Zimbabweans) just put tuckshops and one man saloons that benefit themselves and doesn't give back to South africa's economy. Let's assess the situation before we make any harsh accusations. South Africa has been habouring Zimbabweans since 2006 and during the 2008 era, let's be grateful. South Africa has helped a loy of our brothers and sisters, vamwe vakatovaka dzimba nekutenga moto nemari yeku South Africa. The real person to blame here is Zanu PF for mantaining a crippled economy and doing nothing feasible to procreate our economy (without even discussing corruption, looting etc). Zanu PF is a regional cancer as it now burdens other countries e.g Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa with immigrants who're fleeing poverty. At the end of the day it's high time South Africa gets rid of these immigrants nguva yareba, 10+ years ndekuchengeta mabonga. Chiisiyai i yamwise vana vayo. It's about time, Zimbabweans in South Africa come home and help build the economy with CCC.
