He met Minister of State for Provincial Affairs Senator Monica Mavhunga where he introduced the incoming Commissioner-General Moses Chihobvu. Under his leadership, he showed that inmates can learn life skills in prison that could generate income for the country and themselves when they get released, through the establishment of prison farms and other vocational activities.
He was among the pioneers of reformation and rehabilitation of prisoners in the country as opposed to the punishment that hardened them and made them dangerous to society. He oversaw the country’s prison system shooting to be included among the best in terms of inmate welfare in the world.
