Inmates released after K.C.S.E

26 March 2013, 16:00 Philip Kithome

A governmental amnesty has been awarded to two inmates in Naivasha G.K prisons who had exemplary performance in last year's K.C.S.E exams.

In history, this amnesty is usually aimed at helping inmates try hard to model their behaviors in order to re-shape their lives by focusing on the education.

Among those top the list include Ezekiel Gichuhi who scored an A- and Maurice Onyango who scored B.

Both were serving five year jail terms each for crimes of different magnitudes.

Addressing the press, the warder in charge Patrick Mwenda mentioned that the two had served a better part of their terms and in the due rehabilitation process they had shown a great potential by garnering diplomas in theology.

He further indicated that both inmates could serve the country better while outside since they have completely reformed as per the prisons reports.

"The two have served their terms without major turn of events, a clear indication that they have reformed. They are further pardoned to follow their dreams after an exemplary performance in their K.C.S.E exams," Patrick said.

He further said that despite the challenges that might come their way, the institution will try their level best to see the inmates embrace education for a brighter future.
