47 low risk detainees from Bomana Prison’s Minimum Security Unit came to Gordons this morning to support the mothers and youth groups in Gordons for a cleanathon and drive awareness messages on certain issues in the area.
Bomana Prison’s Officer in Charge for the Minimum Security Unit (MSU)Chief Inspector Dimon Gah says out of the 47 detainees, 11 are female detainees.
“We are here to do cleanathon and do awareness on child abuse, violence against woman, life in prison and also the cleanliness of the city”, said Chief Inspector Gah.
Chief Inspector Gah who is leading the group in the cleanathon and awareness said apart from the detainees there are 200 officers present to carryout the cleanathon and awareness program.
He said they are working with National Capital District Commission and other stakeholders to carry out the program that will later venture out to other centres in NCD.
Meanwhile, Churches in NCD have been challenged to carry out cleanathon and awareness in communities to bring about changes.
Chief Inspector Gah said if low risk prisoners can come out to communities and carryout cleanathon and awareness, why not churches.
