There was a story back them that the cops used to arrest youths at random and force them to go and work at the site for a full day. How true was that?

That is what we should do with prisoners, they should be giving back to society for their bad manners.

People were not arrested to go and work on the construction of kicc. They were mostly arrested for petty of fences and taken to the courts and fined. This fines were used to finance the construction. Kwanza walevi, they should claim shares in that building.

rich history

Quite impressive work
