Teacher Serving 15-year Sentence For Murder Furthers Education In Jail

Teacher Serving 15-year Sentence For Murder Furthers Education In Jail

A Mwenezi teacher who was sentenced to 15 years in prison for murder is among inmates furthering their education in prison.

Chiyaka Maranda (54) was jailed for killing a villager over headmanship.

He started studying Advanced Level in January this year through a peace education programme introduced by the Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Service (ZPCS). Said Maranda:

I want to be a successful businessman upon release. I joined other inmates in furthering my education in January this year.

Life has been darkened since my conviction on a matter I committed while defending my village position.

My late grandfather, who was a village headman, handed the position to me.

Some relatives, who were eyeing the position, organised some thugs to attack me.

I stabbed one of the attackers in the stomach and he died upon admission to a hospital.

Maranda said he regrets his actions as he had no intention to kill.

He said he has finally accepted the sentence and studying has helped him heal.

A lot of primary school teachers get diplomas after 'O' levels. Saka there's nothing out of sync here. He could go directly to a B. Ed. Degree from Dip. Ed., but if he wants to change tack say go for Law Business Studies or Social Sciences, he needs to have 'A'Levels.
