Man Released From Prison for Crime He Didn’t Commit Days After Scoring High in Exam

A 28-year-old man identified as Juma Nyasi was freed after the Voi High Court jailed him for a crime that he didn’t commit.

After being freed, the young man said he had forgiven those who wrongly implicated him in the crime, saying he will now focus on his education.

Nyasi, in turn, appealed to well-wishers who would be touched by his predicament to sponsor his education.

The young man scored 401 marks in the recently released 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination results. 

In his ruling, Justice John Mativo said there was no tangible evidence linking him to the crime in which he had been accused of sexually assaulting a three-year-old boy.

The man has been in custody since March 26, 2021. Speaking to Nation after being freed, Nyasi said he had forgiven those who wrongly implicated him in the crime and will now focus on his education. 

“I am so happy. I cannot express how I am feeling right now. My focus is now on my education,” said Nyasi. 

This was not the first time the vicenarian was sitting for the national examination. He disclosed that he first sat for the KCPE in 2009 at Kale Primary School and enrolled at Marungu Secondary School in Voi where he dropped out in form two when his sponsor died. 

When I went to prison, I decided to keep myself busy and that is why I enrolled for the KCPE exams. Now that I did well, I will ensure that I go to high school,” he added.
