"I Witnessed Rogue Inmates Beheading Their Victims" Man Narrates Painful Jail Experience

In 2006, Apostle Paul Ngugi was falsely accused of robbery with violence by his neighbor and eventually sentenced to death then life sentence in prison after appeal. 

He served in most major prisons in Kenya during his time and eventually ended up in Kamiti.

He suffered in jail since at the time, the conditions in prisons were deplorable and non of his family members wanted to get close to him.

At some point, he witnessed rogue inmates killing other inmates by either beheading them using shanks from aluminum sheets or strangling them using blankets. 

The scenes always left him traumatized.

After 14 years in prison, his neighbour approached him to ask for forgiveness and they started the journey to withdraw the case. The neighbor claimed that he had found his stolen items with another person. 

Paul was so much excited about finally getting his freedom back.

He forgave his neighbour for the act but in a turn of events, the neighbour's children are now convicted with robbery with violence due to a kidnapping case in which they were caught red handed.

The children are serving their sentences at Kamiti maximum prison.
