Malawi Prisoner blocked from going to University

250

A Malawian prisoner George Luhanga has been denied a chance to pursue tertiary education at Chancellor College despite being selected for studies at the institution in Zomba City.

Our findings indicate that the convict did well in Malawi School Certificate of Education examinations in 2012 and was then selected to pursue a Bachelors’ degree in Education at Chanco but because he is still an inmate, he could not enroll.

In an interview with our reporter, Luhanga maintained that despite being a prisoner, it could be of paramount benefit if authorities could allow him to first do his studies and thereafter finish his jail sentence.

“The problem is that they [Chancellor College] cannot keep my place. Had it been that authorities understood, they could have let me go and study, thereafter continue my sentence but they maintain to say it is against the laws of the land,” he said.

Malawi24 understands that in Malawi, there are no laws that allow cutting a prison sentence and letting a convict to pursue studies at college level outside prison walls.

A top Malawi prison official, who leaked the information on condition of anonymity, blamed Malawi laws for being harsh to inmates saying most of them are more intelligent than some free citizens but then they are denied chances to go further with their education.

Former principal secretary in the ministry of education, Samuel Sakuli, who once served a sentence in Malawi prison over abuse of public office echoed this saying that the time he was behind bars, fellow inmates were showing their potential in education, and most of them were doing well.

“I was teaching them some subjects and I could see that most of them had potential and were really good. However the problem is that in our country, laws seem to be sidelining such people,” said Sakuli.

Publicist for Malawi prison, Evanz Phiri, urged the ministry of education to introduce tertiary education in prison and deploy qualified secondary school teachers to take care of some inmates who have potential in education.

Phiri said last year about 68 prisoners performed well in their senior secondary national exams but their journey in education seem to have ended there thus the need to consider introducing some tertiary studies in prisons across the country.

“Ministry of education must also consider giving us qualified teachers. Currently they teach each other but we believe with qualified teachers they will do more than that,” said Phiri.

In reaction to the development, director of Men against violence and prisoners torture (MAVPT) Luke Kaunda blamed Malawian laws for restricting chances of prisoners to go further with their studies.

He said much as prisons are not places for punishing people; it should also imply that prisoners who deserve the best in life must be given such chances.

“Laws must be revised or may be if that fails then the ministry of education must intervene with helpful solutions,” said Kaunda.

  1. Why then do we offer secondary education to them if we know it ends there? Don’t we know that some have potential to do well? Those that do well should automatically qualify for parole if we can’t offer tertiary education in our prisons!

  2. Selection to university does not reduce prison sentences imposed by courts. The guy is a convict. It is good that he is now pursuing education and, possibly, putting his criminal past behind. Nevertheless, he must complete his jail time. He should seek a deferra – I hope unima would gladly grant him one!

  3. Malawi its a country yomwe president when he say yes,everyone say yes bwana,where are human rights?y did u offer education in prison?now u denied the fast kuti munthu apite ku university,its not all the people who are in prison who are guety,some are paying for the crime thy did not comit,and thise z there only way out,,,,,,,,if its that then stop offering education kundende,am not in malawi bt i have see lots of things in different coutries and i know pipo deserve pure chance for education,,,,,,more especally to prisoners who wud like to fix their past mistake…………..

    Human Rights Organisations and Groups this is your real task, fuuuu…

  22. Komaso inu Malawi 24 munayenela kut fotokozela kut mnyapalao analakwa chian kut apezeke kundendeko ,kukhoza mayeso kulibe phindu ngat anakwa chachikulu ,mngakhale wa police amamagwidwa life sentence kut tengela momwe walakwila

  23. Prison Service isn’t above the constitution, it has done its part, all of you who are ignorantly criticizing Pris. go change the const. and put a provision which shall serve as such. In its capacity, Pris. has done the first part of rehabilitation, he went behind the bars having 1000 points, Pris has helped him reduce to .. giving him a chance to pursue….., help him by going to court and plead with it rather than eyeing Pris. Dept. as being inhumane.

  24. Give him a chance to study, he may be exmple for other prisoner. nothing is impossible and these man one day he can live to tell the world and change minds set of other criminals

  25. ngati munthu anamuvomeleza kulemba exam,thers no need kumulesa kupita ku colg.why anaika lamulo loti akundende azilemba nao?ankaona ngati onse ndi mbuli?lero ndi izo.osapanga malamulo mongoyelekeza.

    • Adoris constitution ikuti akuyenera kukaoitiliza maphunziro once he finishes his sentance. Moti malo ake alipo akapita ku university, munthuyu ali ndi mulandu woopsya ndithu sangamupatse pardon wamva?

  26. Ukawauze majaji zimenezo ,anakuuza ndani kuti mkaidi akakhonza ndie kuti ukaidi wake watha . Chigawenga ngati chimenecho , chimalize basi

Zinazi tiziganiza kaye tisanapeleke ndemanga zathu chifukwa ndemanga yanuyo ikuonetsa umunthu wanu mmene uliri.

  28. Inde sionse Ali kundende Ali ochimwa,koma ayang’ane mulandu wake mmene ulili,(mgwaukulu bwanji?watsala ndinthawi yochuluka bwanji kuti amalize ukaidi wake?)then government should come up with a fair decision ,to let him go or save his sentence.TINGAYAMBE KUMULEKA KUPITA KU UNIVERSITY AKATELO MKUKAZAMA MKUKHALA NDIMNZERU ZOPANGILA MABOMBA,AZATIPHA TONSE

  29. In fact UNIMA should consider teaching/learning by correspondence for those who, for a reason or another, can’t attent walk-in/live-in tuition

    • man yankhulani mwanzeru ngati munthu wochokera kumpoto kumene anthu ake ali anzeru, luntha komaso achikondi. Why hating prison? Munthu samatulutsidwa ndi aprison, ndipo mufuna muwayike pamavuto? George malo ake aku university anamusungira akamaliza sentance akapita. Prison sinapange constitution ndipo even pardon iwo samatengapo mbali. Iwowo amangolandira ma command from above. Ngati zili choncho palibe chifukwa chokhaliranso ndi prison. Mwayankhula bwino inuyo anthu akumverani mwaoneka dolo, koma think again & revisit our constitution. Mind u, George mulandu wake sukuudziwa ine ndikuudziwa. Khalani ndiulemu ndithu. Kaya munapita ku university ifenso tinapita

  33. Should we stop fighting crime or enforcing law just because one suspect, convict or prisoner is student, academic, intelligent, educated, rich, poor, dull, maize farmer, married, sick or doctor in society? It means we shall make many laws to suit environment and peoples statuses.

  34. the university must be considerate of keeping his place, osati amatuluse his still a prisoner despite being shortlisted @Chanco.

  35. Ngati wakwanitsa kuphinzira secondary ku ndende, ena amuphunzitsenso university ku ndende konko. Kaya achita ACCA, kaya ABE… koma skulu ndi chilango chomwe khothi inamupatsa l, sizikugwilizana.

  36. Prisoners r also human beings, if we r nt in prison it doesnt mean we r perfect. Justice z equal rights to all. This person deserve hs right to higher education.

  37. KODI MUKUTI ANTULUTSE, NANGA NGATI ANAPHA MUNTHU ATULUKEBE? NANGA AKANAPHA M’BALE WANU MUKANATI ATULUKEBE? INE SINDUKUWONA KUMUPHWANYIRA UFULU KWAKE BECAUSE EVEN IYEYO TO BE CALLED A PRISONER ANAPHWANYA UFULU WAMUNTHU WINA

  38. sionse amakhala ku ndende ali olakwa nkutheka analephera kulankhula think before u critise some one. ngati akuwakaniza why lwt them studying in prison zoopuusa baasi

    • koma George ekhayo mlandu wake kuti ndikuuze ugwa ulesi, malo ake ku university anamusungira akawapeza. Ndizoona ena ndiosalakwa koma George ekhayo khala chete amaba magalimoto osati sewero

  39. Ngati akumukaniza analoranji kut aziphuzira kuprison?samadziwa kut azikhoza?.Ine ndikuti akaptilize maphuziro ake,mulonda azikamudikilira komweko!,kuchapatala amamudikira bwanji akamadwala omangidwayo?kusukulukoso ndizotheka kutero.

  40. The other option is that the universty should just consider correpondence studies for the inmate…if the Prison officials cannot release him to go and further his education.

  41. then siyani kupereka maphunziro a secondary ku ndende… simumadziwa kuti ngati munthu wakhoza bho atha kutengedwa kupita for tertiary education…. #senseless

  42. Wina anaba mbuzi koma ali pa IHL ndiye wakhoza mayeso. IHL yakeyo amugwirira ndani akapita ku xool? Amene ayambire kuseva xool pambuyo. A Prison alibe mphamvu yotulutsa munthu kundende mwamva.

  43. Malawians people u wil remain idiots like u are til jesus christ come.why u saying stupit things by supporting that bastard criminal? U want him keep on killing people outside? Forsake u fools a prisoner is prisoner nomore chances for good things that he could done out side if he comit a case he must learn that kuchimwira lamulo sikwabwino coz zithu zomwe umaenera kuzipanga kapena kuzipeza uli kuja sukazipezaso kundende ayi.chocho mukati ng’ewu ng’ewu ng’ewu apa ndikudabwa nanu apusi nonse akometa zokhuza kumubakira mbavayi mukufuna abweleko azizatiberaposo apa?

Wakula ndiumbuli pamalawi coz being an ignorant makes peopla to forget quickly.

    • Amen. Why he must be given a basic right when he has violated the rights of another is beyond me…People fail to understand that this guy is behind bars for their protection and good. Amalize sentence then once declared free azayese mwayi kachikena…

    • @ #maurice_amaruh_banda like i said already that u realy dnt knw [email protected] r u commenting abt&da problem is that.U dont knw that u dnt knw thats fuckn big problem of yours. @ #Vincent_micRose kungoti anthuwa samazisata bwana amangofikira kuthilira ndemanga padzithu zoti palibe chomwe akuziwapo alekeni akhale ndiumbuli wawowo.iwe #maurice ngat ali bale wako ingopanga zoti ukamutengeko basi kapena ingositha malamulo basi iyaaa usatinyasepo apa sindimalimbana ndianthu ofoira ngat mumabera limodzi ingoyang’ana member wina kt uzikapha naye anthu basi iyaaaaaa

    • ukulankhura zomwe usakuziwa ndiwe ka, in life when it comes to make a decision you check for the results previously of the same situations. Nde m’mbuyomu ma inmates akapangaso chonchi amawalora kuphuzira while they are still serving their sentence…. What a wasted sperm your man. Kungopanga makani opanda mutu basi.

    • U’ve mentioned something like killing more people if he’s set free,does that mean u know the crime he commited ryt?That he killed people?Think critically brother man,that is ur opinion,don’t generalize as if we know a crime he commited

    • Yaaa i knw his case thats y i said so but even if it is not killing people kaya ndikuba ndizithu zolakwika coz kuba sikwabwino iweyoso ngat uli mbali yawakuba wakoyo nkhani ndioti panga zoti akapange za gelizo basi.tizikugwirani mbamva inu kumakupasani zaka zochuluka chocho anthu ofuna kukolora musanalime inu munya muona panopa tizingowombera kupha basi iyaaa mwatikwana kwabasi agali okuba inu #titus

    • a Maurice kwao ngati kuli ophunzira ndakayika, moti iyeyu sadziwa constitution kuti imati chani? Umbuli sungapose apa guyz. @khambi wayankhula zanzeru komanso zomveka

    • Akuti ndi mtumbuka nde ndi wanzeru koma zimene zikulembedwazo he’s even failing to interpret the law,Mtumbuka opusa iwe.for ur information emotions,feelings dnt go together with rule of law.ngati iwe #Maurice uli wakuba tikadzakugwira tizakuotcha basi.mbava iwe.

    • A prisoner is got no right especially the killers.Its good that he’s been blocked from going to university untill he complete his sentence.However, no man deserves right if he abuses onother man’s right to life.Furthermore,a prison is a place where people are made to change their attitudes apon other people’s lives and the property.In addition to that,a prison is aplace where human’s are made to know the goodness of fearing and respecting the rule of law, not be a graduate.

  44. It is unholy & barbalic atitude we should remind each other that prison is a correctional service not hell,there4 it is vital to give him opportunity to study further.

  45. what was the aim of givng a przonrs achance of doing there education while u know that on asetan level u will not allow them to kp on going eeeee ndakwiya nanu ndimve zoti apita kokapitiliza xul yake bax abwanawo tamusiyen JOSEphy to achieve his Dream plz

  46. by leting him 2 continue wit his tertiary education might b part of his reformation,mesa mumati kundende ndikosithila anthu?#sangapangechibwana.

  47. Let hm go to university….akapanda kuphunzra ameneo we b a strong criminal coz tsogolo lake litchngka think twice kuxul be on his bak kut atapanga zopoila bas waluza mwai..chonde he deserves dat chance to go…mwna ena akuopa wakuprison angakakhale bwana kkkkkkkk …ngat sapita xul zanu zakundendezo zthe coz nzopanda tsogolo

  48. by leting him 2 continue wit his tertiary education might b part of his reformation,mesa mumati kundende ndikosithila anthu?#sangapangechibwana.

  49. mene ukhalira moyo wa kundende ngati anakwanisa kukhonza bwino for university selection,he’s a changed man he deserved some leniency,amene sanachimwepo amponye miyala

  50. I know situations where candidates can write the University to reserve their admission for a year or so. People have not been able to start because they were sick or pregnant in between being offered the place and the next opening with others failing on financial grounds. Once they are ready the University accepts that they can start if they sought reservation of their place in the first place. The best thing the guy can do and organisations promoting rights to education can do it to ensure that he first write the University requesting for reservation of place and then check with the laws of the land through courts to reconsider his sentence. After all the Head of State offers pardons to prisoners of good conduct who have served a good part of heir sentence every year…. May be he can be considered

  51. Malamulo amanena kuti munthu umayenera kuganiza kaye za udindo wako kapena tsogolo lako usanapalamule, therefore the accused person did not think of his education first thats y he commited the offence

  52. Education is a right. Even prisoners are entitled to that. I believe there are some provisions in the Malawi constitution which can be used to address this challenge. May the Parole Board, Civil Society, Church or Faith Based Organizations and Educationists advise on the best move on this issue . I guess we can be level headed when handling this matter, by taking care of what is workable and avoiding misinterpretation or setting wrong precedence.

  53. The purpose of education in prisons is to eradicate illiterate among prisoners.If they are in prison it means they broke the law of this land,and they must serve their sentences first,they will solve when they finish serving their sentences,otherwise we have to amend the laws concerning the rights of prisoner mainly in education.

  54. Greedy Malawian government. U don’t know that the person u denied can save ur poor Malawi. I’m glad im in South Africa cz I’m living my life with peace

  55. Why the board let him to sit for exams while the constitution doesn’t allow that?My question is does Malawi’s constitution amended to hinder prisoners to sit for examination?When?And what is the good reason of examining a person and when passing hindering him to go further?Is this not madness?Aren’t the authorities madness?Isn’t this crazy?

  56. Amene Anayambitsa Za Maphunziro Akundende Amupezere Mwai Wopitiriza Maphunziro Ake. Ngati Ndondomeko Yake Inkangothera Pa Secondary Level Ndi Kape.

  57. Aim ya education ku prison ndi chan,i think dat pt of allowing a prisoner after sentence to apply 4 tertiary education is not gud komanso y was the person allowed to apply while n prison?

  58. Leaders of Gvt of Malawi dats y u mek fool of ur selve u always cashgating our money wch z a big issue y we r sturving bt u ain’t allow one person to correct his/her mistakes dats 1 way of encouraging him to commit crimes.plz,plz leaders dnt luk wat others they hv done luk wat Malawi in future wud be lyk.

  59. Akanaphunzira akanazakhala nzika yodalilika instead of letting him go n continue studing u r kipin him there…wat will the nation benefit if he will b there 4 10 years n become useless to de nation n to his family..mxxim

  60. He shud first finish his jail term them he wil proceed to Chanco. A prisoner has limited rights because he must have violated someone’s rights for him to found at the prison.

  61. kodi ukakhoza mayeso a university ndiye kuti ndende su seva kuti ukukapitiriza maphunziro ! Tisayiwale ngati court yati manga 10 years ndende tiyenera tigwire timalize tikamalizano tipange apply ku chancellor College adzatitenga mosakaika!

  62. Then whydid they allow himto sit for theentrance exams in the first place…. kapena nsanje kukhomelerana… he has exceeded ur expectations.. kkkkk Once a Malawian always a Malawian

  63. Surely this is sad news.Prison is there not only to punish for the wrong doing also to teach good so that when the prisoner is intergrated in the community become a good member of that particular society.One of the ways for our instutions like this one to teach can be allowing a guy like this one to pursue his studies.Looking at the lives of many freedom fighters and other criminals in general, have once been given a right to education
    inspite of their circumstances and end up being leaders themselves one day.I am making it a point that education is a right.I surely believe there is a problem with our law in this instance.Once a criminal does not mean one shall die one.

  64. Look, these people are prisoners some of whom committed very serious crimes. they cannot change overnight simply because they have performed well in their exams, no. Let them finish their sentences first and be transformed, then they can continue with their tertiary education outside the prison walls. Simple.
