Celebrity Prisoner: The Story of Mutinda Mwai

American novelist and New York Times bestselling author Jessica Sorensen once said: Seize the day, take hold of it and make it whatever you want.

This seems true for the 42-year-old prisoner who sought to make the most out of his time at Kaloleni GK prison in Kilifi County. Mutinda Mwai enjoys celebrity status in jail due to his notable reporting skills.

He is celebrated by his peers and bosses for his outstanding prowess in informing other prisoners of the happenings both inside and outside the prison.

The convict utilizes his free time showcasing his reporting skills to other inmates, who follow his words.

During an interview with a local media outlet, Mwai seized an opportunity to show off his skills to his boss, Chief Inspector Paul Kaburu who is the police officer in charge of the correctional facility.

"First and foremost, I laud you for interviewing me as your guest. Second to our viewers, take heed that those who are in prison can also reform their lives," Kaburu stated.

The officer added that Mwai is among many convicts who have shown tremendous progress during their time in prison. In the case of Mwai, he admitted impersonating a police officer. He has currently served one year and two months of his three-year sentence.

"When I came to prison, the police officers granted me access to various services. Further, through having numerous chats with my colleagues, they branded me as a news anchor for my impeccable skills," Mwai stated.
