Three Correctional Services are in the county to benchmark with Zambia Correctional Service (ZCS )on Agriculture.
The three are Angola Correctional Service, Namibia Correctional Service and Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Service.
This morning the trio paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security Honourable Jack Mwiimbu.
The Minister who welcomed the visitors said their visit to Zambia would cement their relations and enhance Cooperation in the Southern African Developing Countries (SADC).
Minister Mwiimbu also urged the three Services to actualize the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that the countries have signed with regards to inmate transfer and other resolution agreed upon from the Joint Permanent Commission (JPC).
And speaking on behalf of the three Commissioner Generals, Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Service Commissioner General Moses Chihobvu said benchmarking was important as it would enhance co-operation in the SADC region.
“it is important that before we go to Europe or America we strengthen cooperation within the SADC region,” he said. “Therefore, our coming to Zambia is to exchange knowledge on good agricultural practices.”
The Zimbabwean Commissioner General said it was not the first time the country was benchmarking with Zambia. He said Zimbabwe had already benchmarked with ZCS on the Kalonga Milling Plant in Kabwe.
Mr. Chihobvu assured the Minister that the three countries would work to actualize the MoU signed with ZCS.
The other two Commissioner Generals are Bernardo Pereira do Amaral Gourgel of Angola and Raphael Tuhafeni Hamunyela of Namibia.
