Facts You Did Not Know About Kamiti Maximum Prison In Kenya

Most of our Kenya's prisons have become quite famous due to their poor conditions and bad treatment for prisoners. This situation improved slightly during Mwai Kibaki's government since 2002. This led to prisoners who had been subjected to death sentence to be released most so in Kamiti.

In 2009 in Kamiti Maximum Prison there was cholera outbreak which led to demise of some prisoners. This led to fear of many prisoners, most of them being transferred from Kamiti to Naivasha prison as well as other prisons.

Kamiti Maximum Prison was built for 1400 prisoners, and it now houses over 3600 in poor living conditions. It has been enlarged to accommodate more prisoners since it is believed to be the best in terms of prisoners security.

At Kamiti Maximum Prison there is freedom of worship, where prisoners go to serve God and worship. Willing prisoners get saved and begin ministering the word of God to other prisons though under tight security.
