By Our Chief National Correspondent, Landing Badjie The conditions in the country’s central prison is becoming a concern not only to right activists but also the administrators of justice. A Zimbabwean high court judge, Justice Monageng, was last Thursday interested to know what the conditions were like at Mile 2.”I am really concerned. What is happening in prison? This man has been coming to my court and his condition of health degenerates anytime he appears before me,” the judge posited. Justice Monageng made these remarks when presiding over the case of one Buba Ceesay who appeared in her court, looking frail and walking in an unsteady manner. In another development, the death of a prisoner in Mile II was announced. Alhaji Njie reportedly died while in prison. The cause of his death could not be established though he was said to have been battling with sickness in prisons. His body was handed over to his family in Tallinding and was laid to rest on Saturday. It would be recalled that a Briton, who was remanded at Mile II this year, made a startling revelation at the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court that inmates at Mile II were dying in numbers following an outbreak of beriberi there.
