Renowned local musician Maiko Zulu has called on the corporate world to supplement government efforts in helping raise and improve the standards of prisons in the country.
Mr. Zulu says the private sector can contribute to bettering the welfare of inmates and the less privileged in society by exercising their social responsibility.
He lamented that the plight of prisoners in Zambia was bad hence the need to complement the efforts of government.
Mr. Zulu was speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka today after making a donation of assorted goods that included books, clothes and bath soap to Kamwala Remand prison.
The reggae artist said he was compelled to make the donation after his stint at the remand prison following drug charges against him.
