Mass cells - Mweru Works CampYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
The buildings reconstructed here are mass cells in what was Mweru works camp. Mass cells could hold approximately 60 detainees in a space measuring 17ft by 28ft. They had no windows and only had a single entrance. The only ventiliation was the space between the roof and the walls, and this was lined with barbed wire to prevent detainees from escaping.
After independence Mweru Works Camp was converted into a secondary school and today goes by the name Mweru High School. These buildings can still be found within the school today and are presently used as classrooms. The school has made some modifications such as adding windows to the buildinds however the barbed wire evidence along the roof can still be seen.
