Walvis Bay Prison hands out certificates to inmates

The Ombetja Yehinga Organisation (OYO) held a workshop in basic skills in self-discipline, self-esteem and self-consciousness at the Walvis Bay Prison recently. This workshop is the last of similar workshops that was held at correctional facilities countrywide for inmates.
On a disappointing note, this workshop will discontinue indefinitely, as funds ran out. During a media session with namib times OYO appealed for both Government and the private sector to assist in continuing with these workshops in future.
Namibia’s correctional services network is based on the principle of rehabilitation of offenders and workshops like these are important in the process of rehabilitation of inmates, it was explained.
On the picture herewith: inmates with the Acting Head of the Walvis Bay Prison, Commissioner L Hangula and course facilitators during the handout of certificates of attendance. Hangula during the certificate handout applauded a program that is administered by inmates whereby they visit schools and educate learners on the devastating effect drugs have on children and how it negatively affects people in their adult lives thereafter.
