And Mr. MWIIMBU said the Ministry has embarked on capacity building programmes across departments to enhance service delivery.
Mr. MWIIMBU said Government is committed to upholding the rule of law to guarantee safety of citizens, civil rights and liberties.
Meanwhile, Correctional Services Commissioner General FREDERICK CHILUKUTU said the course- one intake of 2022 which passed out today is the largest group in the history of the Service.
And Mr. CHILUKUTU said the Service is working with ex-inmates to form cooperatives as a reintegration initiative.
