Malawi Prison authorities have transferred three top officers at Zomba maximum prison following a spate of jail break outs.
Sources said the officer-in-charge, the station officer and the disciplinary officer have all been transferred to various prisons.
A new set of management is expected to take over this week.
There have been three break outs this year alone, the latest was in November when three inmates drilled a hole within the maximum prison and escaped.
Two of the inmates were recaptured but one is still at large.
Prison spokesperson Chimwemwe Shaba said the transfers were normal.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
