President Uhuru Kenyatta
Kenyaâ€™s President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday announced the release of 7,000 prison inmates to make room for corruption offenders.
Kenyatta said on National Heroesâ€™ 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 countryâ€™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.
