The Good News Revival Centre (GNRC) has donated maize, beans and salt worth about K2 million to the Chichiri prison in Blantyre. The donation comes at a time when authorities at the facility have admitted struggling to meet the food demands.

GNRC Founder, Bishop Nedson Milanzi said on Monday that the gesture meant to exemplify the love of Jesus Christ as Christmas approaches.


“These brothers and sisters need our help. I implore on fellow Christians to give out what ever little they may afford. We should not only wait for these people to sound an alarm,” said Milanzi.

On his part, Chichiri Prison Station Officer, Audscot Mtegha described the donation as timely as they are failing to source enough food commodities from the market due to resource constraints hence rationing meals as times.

“As much as we are doing our best to provide food to all inmates, it’s a challenge as we have a very high population,” he said.

The facility which has a population of about 1600 inmates requires about 25 bags of maize and 5 bags of beans every day.  It was initially meant to hold 500 inmates.

Prior to the event, GNRC trained 60 inmates who will be evangelizing to their fellows in prison cells. The church has been rendering assistance to prison facilities for about 30 years now.
