In appreciation Superintendent Lawrence Matola the station officer for Zomba Prison said the donation came at the right time when the prison was about to release some prisoners. Supt Matola also said that the prison is also keeping some who have spent many years at the prison and the clothes they brought in is completely torn. Most of the prisoners when they are released they go home in rags which doesn’t portray a good picture and they found it difficult to be accepted by their community that they have been transformed.
DAPP Malawi accepted the request to donate clothes to Zomba prison so that the prisoners who are to be released should have something to put on. He also said that the outgoing prisoners need a "fresh" start in life so that they can sustain themselves and not end up coming back in the prison.
Out of 285 prisoners who received the donation 22 were female and they each received 6 pieces of clothes.
