A prison where inmates kill each other and eat the dead

Kigali: Gitarama prison in Rwanda is said to be one of the deadliest in the world.

The condition in this prison are a nightmare for one to stay. According to reports, around 6-7 thousand inmates are locked inside it, whereas the maximum capacity of the jail is only 600.

The prisoners of Gitarama prison spend their time mostly standing due to shortage of space.

But what's more troubling is the fact that the inmates frequently indulge in deadly fights and eat the dead bodies of the prisoners killed to stay alive.

Not only this, reports say that 7-8 prisoners die daily in Gitarama jail due to pathetic conditions. The prisoners more often remain barefoot and suffer from gangrene.

Many human rights organisations have protested against the deplorable condition inside the jail, but haven't succeeded in improving the situation here.
