The vice president of Zambia will be the guest of honour at an ecumenical prayer service for prisoners and inmates in Lusaka’s Cathedral of the Holy Cross next week. The event, which has been organised by Christian leaders across the denominations, will mark the launch in Zambia of the “Nelson Mandela Rules” – a UN-promoted standard set of minimum rights for prisoners.
