Fire has gutted key offices at the prison headquarters in Zomba in the wee hours of Wednesday but has not affected Zomba Maximum prison inmates.

Prisons spokesperson Julius Magombo said the fire started around 2am on Wednesday but authorities are yet to establish the cause of the fire.

“The fire has affected our key administration offices, three offices where property and important documents have been destroyed,” he said.

Magombo said this will negatively affect operations of the prisons in the country, saying the offices destroyed are key administrative offices for the prison headquarters.

He, however, said all the 8000 inmates at the Zomba Maximum prison were safe.

This is an inside job, well prepared and calculated like the steps of a tiger when it wants to catch an impala. I am sure someone is behind it. The fire was being controlled by someone located somewhere around using a remote control. Someone was outside his or her house at an okward hour to make sure that all evidence has been destroyed. Corrupt president, ,,,,corrupt government officials, ,,,,,,,corrupt civil servants corrupt everything bad news to poor Malawians.
