Through his idea, offices and a lecture theater have been built to help manage the MAPP Project.
“One day I sat in my cell in the Condemn Section and I saw a little bird fly in and feed its chicks. I told myself, if this little bird can find freedom in this jail, then I can also find something worthwhile to do,” said Mohan, a Zambian national of Indian descent.
Mohan was Lungu’s campaign manager at Mukobeko prison where prisoners were allowed to vote.
