A plea has been made by a human rights activist, Samuel Ramazani, for the reinforcement of police personnel assigned to the central prison of Kalima, in the Maniema province.

This plea was made after the escape of two inmates arrested for theft and rape on Sunday, April 7, 2024, from this prison. The sole police officer on duty to guard this prison fled, abandoning his weapon.

This human rights activist laments the repeated escapes at the central prison of Kalima and calls on the authorities of this prison to strengthen the police force there.

According to him, the parties responsible for these escapes would be the police authorities, due to their decision to assign only one police officer to the jail. He recalled that this is the third time such a situation has occurred in this prison.
