A- behind bars
Ruth Kamande is among the 901 girls countrywide who scored a mean grade of A- minus. She excelled despite sitting for her exams at Langata women prison.
Apart from being a prison beauty, Ruth is also a trained paralegal and now an A- student. She revealed that she decided to train as a paralegal to gain knowledge to help her in her case.
“In prison, there are so many opportunities which comprise the reform programmes. So there is education that is provided, formal education, I do paralegal training which has helped me with my case which I’m still handling. They also give you an opportunity to explore your talents,” Ruth Kamande said in an interview with KTN in 2016.
