“We have noticed that there are people who have grabbed Perisons land, We’ve also seen a storey building in the face of the prison” he said.
Prisons is correction facility not a punishment area, Sakaja added.
The Nairobi senator promised to take up the matter with relevant authorities.
In May 2019 the Kenya Prisons Service (KPS) notified individuals irregularly occupying prisons land to vacate.
The Commissioner General of Prisons Service Wycliffe Ogalo said no effort shall be spared until all grabbed prisons land is repossessed.
“We are going all out to get our land back and we shall not treat those illegally occupying it with kid gloves,” he warned.
