The sixth round of free legal clinics saw 80 law students visit the Langata Women Prison in Nairobi on Saturday 3 September 2016. The law students upheld the principle, ‘innocent until proven guilty’ by providing free legal advice to over 200 remandees.
The cases handled by the students ranged from murder, robbery with violence, drug trafficking to loitering. Even the newly crowned Miss Langata Prison ‘Ruth Kamende’ was not left out; the students offered her legal advice on her murder charges. She has been charged with stabbing her boyfriend 22 times. The students also donated much needed food stuff and toiletries to the inmates and their children who lived behind bars.
