A middle aged Mchinji female inmate, Chrissy Banda sustained injuries after being heavily beaten and abused by the Lilongwe Based Maula Prison. Chrissy Banda is an inmate who was incarcerated after being accused of stealing a baby in Mchinji.
Our sources told our reporters weeks after the beating occurred, that the victim has been hallucinating and is behaving erratically. “I think that these warders causing injuries which have affected some thinking capabilities,” said our sources.
Maula prison warders are not new in brutalizing the offenders. Recently, the warders especially at the female section, poured water in the rooms of the offenders especially their beddings and floor. Our sources told us that they failed to sleep at that time because their beddings were wet that night.
Meanwhile, Gender activist, Mrs. Emma Kaliya has condemned the warders for the assault on Banda. “If this is true, it is unacceptable and we condemn it in strongest terms because it’s not only barbaric but unlawful,” said Kaliya.
