Look after the children

Whilst we urge communities and society to 'accept back' the recently pardoned ex-prisoners, it is also important to mention that not all have changed their ways. In fact, a few if not more, have returned more dangerous than they were at the time of incarceration.

With that in mind, people must keep an eye on such persons who may easily resume their evil shenanigans and criminal antics to the prejudice of many. Some years back after a similar amnesty, some hardened criminals were back behind bars after only a few days out of jail, having committed more crimes.

Some are said to have acquired skills whilst serving time if any are among the recently freed, I urge the relevant authorities to encourage these to start income generating projects. Women who did dressmaking can form groups and approach the Women' Bank for funding. Most cases of rape are committed by known people and at times, by some rogue members of the family.

It's not advisable to leave children in the care of the ill-mannered. At the end of the day ', they are men' who are capable of anything uncouth.

Schools are closing soon, keep an eye on your children. They are the future.
