Popular City pastor, Godfrey Migwi of House of Hope Church has come out to urge president Uhuru Kenyatta to release prisoners who he claims have reformed or have been sentenced unfairly.
The pastor who has been very vocal in the past few months said this through his Facebook page attracting hundreds of comments from Kenyans following him on his social media pages.
In his post Pastor Migwi went on to say that he has had the chance to minister and mingle with some prisoners and so far has learnt that some of them did not received justice due to corruption and bribery. He wrote saying;
“I do a lot of work with prisons and there are horror stories of unfairness and injustices in these places. “People with good hearts were put into this spaces because of corruption and money exchanging hands. Some of them may have committed atrocities in the past but they have since repented and they should be given another chance to make right of their lives,”
Pastor Migwi went on to say that since they have reformed – some of these prisoners should at least be pardoned and sent out to mix with the public in order to see whether they indeed learnt from their mistakes.
“Your government can create a system where these people report to the chiefs and other institutions of authority to ensure they are behaving and if they dare go against the rule of law, then they should be taken back to prison,”
Though this may sound like the perfect idea, it is quite hard to determine whether our government is in a position to pull such moves…but hopefully everything will turn out just fine since a mistake is never a mistake until repeated twice!
