Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday announced the release of 7,000 prison inmates to make room for corruption offenders.

Kenyatta said on National Heroes’ Day that the ones to be released have been convicted of minor offences and are close to the end of their jail terms.

Kenya Prisons Service says the country’s 118 correctional facilities hold 56,000 inmates, double their capacity.

At a meeting discussing the fight against corruption recently, Kenyatta said he would decongest prisons to allow judges to send more corruption offenders to jail.

    Africa my Africa
    Throwing people in jail has not, will not stop corrupt practices
    Creating processses and systems would!
    Learn to think faster than the criminals.
    Before you implement anything ask yourself how to block corruption in it
    Thank God we are in the technology age.

    In other words, secure your home from thieves.
    Don’t leave your doors ajar ,hoping to catch thieves who will steal your valuables then send them to jail Takes too much time and energy and you may not even recover a thing !

    Corrupt people needs to be stoned by mob before they are arrested by law enforcers.Start with you and me now and lts denounce corruption.On our roads as per my suggestion we may ask for Traffic Police from abroad attach them with our own until bribes by matatus and other road users is put to an end.During recruitments,I would talk of the same foreign forces plus our referees etc.On top of all that we should be GOD fearing and learn to do good at all times even if nobody is watching.Remember GOD is watching.lets not be driven by gread
