MPs want prisoners to vote in 2017

13 February 2016, 21:33 Mohammed Yusuf

Nairobi - Prisoners will have a chance to vote in the next general elections if recommendations by the Parliamentary committee on Administration and National security to have the prisoners given a chance to elect their representatives sails through.

Members of the committee were touring the Naivasha GK maximum prison when they pointed the need to amend several laws that deny the prisoners rights to vote.

According to the committee's acting chair Grace Kiptum, prisoners just like other Kenyans have a right to enjoy the privileges that come with the new laws.

She said that they will be making several recommendations to the Kenya Prisons Act that will allow inmates to enjoy several rights including that of voting.

"It will be wrong to deny the inmates their rights and this is why we want them to vote in the coming general elections," she said.

Simon Ng'ang'a, an inmate on life sentence for murder says that it is high time some of their sentences were reviewed. He said that 87 percent of inmates are innocent, adding that their accusers bought justice through a corrupt system.

"I was sentenced to death by the appellate court before former president Mwai Kibaki commuted us to life, but we do not know how long a life sentence should be," he said.

He said that Judges Samuel Bosire, Emmanuel O'kubasu and Supreme Court Judge Phillip Tunoi sentenced him to death.

"The two have already been sacked for corruption while Tunoi is facing a tribunal to investigate corruption allegations against him and this is why we want a fresh bench to review our cases," he said.
