Convicted Criminal Obtains 7 Distinctions In Prison School

Convicted criminal, Khanyile Faba, was announced as the top prison school achiever after he received 7 distinctions.

The 23 year old is currently serving a 10 year sentence at Brandvlei Correctional Centre.

Faba did not want to share the crime he was convicted for. He did add that he already had a matric certificate when he got arrested. He decided to redo it because he didn’t do well.

“I know my ability and I know that I can do better. When I was still free, I honestly did not see the importance of education due to peer pressure and drugs. I will continue with my education and pursue electrical engineering studies.”

Correctional Service Minister, Ronald Lamola, stated that 8 of their prison schools received 100% pass rates.

A lot of people were not impressed with the news. The fact that criminals get free secondary and tertiary education rubs people off the wrong way. A lot of people are struggling to get university funding.
