He noted however that food prepared for prisoners looks very unpalatable and as he puts it, “some prisoners prefer selling their food to other prisoners for two hundred; less a cent of a dollar.”

Leaks reaching this press have it that prisoners that are called ‘Red Bands’ particularly those serving longer jail terms overindulges in petty trading- selling items such as pepper, salt, margie to other prisoners to enable them make delicious food given them.
