Kigali: The minister of Justice and Attorney General Johnston Busingye has visited juvenile inmates incarcerated in Nyagatare prison and to ensure they study well to get transformed other than to expecting to get released.

Every year, juvenile inmates who pass national exams get presidential pardon and immediately released as stipulated in the constitution.

"All of you should reflect on the crimes you committed and get transformed so that whenever you complete your respective sentences, you will uphold discipline other than studying to pass exams and get released" said Minister Busingye.

Minister Busingye visited the facility to see how the juvenile inmates live, and thank those who take care of them and teach them as for the past two years all juvenile inmates who sat for national exams passed 100 percent.

Those who got presidential pardon joined their families and continued with their studies in normal schools.

The minister warned juvenile inmates that only studying would not be the ticket to get pardoned unless they change their behaviors.

The minister toured various departments of the facility accompanied by RCS Commissioner General George Rwigamba. (End)
