    MASVINGO-The prison inmates from across Masvingo Province will join the rest of the country in observing the annual Family Week where they are set to have more time with their visiting loved ones from August 19 to 23 this year.
    The Family Week which was introduced in the country by Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services Commissioner General, Rtd Major General Paradzai Zimondi in 2016 is to allow inmates to have time with their loved ones daily from 9am to 3pm for the duration of the commemorations.
    The period will see prison inmates being allowed to have more visitors and for longer periods than during other visiting times in the year where they are restricted to only 15 to 30 minutes under the watchful eyes of prison officers.
    The Family Week is also meant to improve the rehabilitation of offenders while facilitating their re-integration into society through enhanced interaction with various stakeholders such as churches and other interested parties.
