The building, with capacity of 20 beds for female inmates, is now completely evacuated, as its collapse became imminent to the prison management.

According to Brig. Gen. Manyok Jok, a former prison director in Bor, the crack forced them to move inmates into another building as they waited for response the government for renovation.

“This building is totally cracking, we are fearing that it may fail anytime. We evacuated convicted inmates to another room. This is what we have reported to the government so that government come and make renovation but until now there is no positive response from the authority”, Jok said.

The construction of the state the prison funded by UNDP, was completed in 2010 in Bor. Since then, the prison had been homes to hundreds of inmates convicted for various charges including murder, rapes, theft and adultery, among others.

Last week, feeding of inmates of in the prison was reportedly said to be one of the pressing issues that faced its administration since the crisis subsided in 2014.
