THE inmates of Kokstad Prison have sung a song celebrating the donation of 13 computers by the Management College of Southern Africa (Mancosa). The donation, the first of its kind to be given to inmates at the prison, was handed over to a ceremony on Wednesday.

 The prisoners came to see the offering, and they just sang and rejoiced over their gift. Another inmate, Sthembile Dlamini, who is serving a life sentence, said they were very happy with the gift that would help them when they were released from prison. “We will be able to get out of prison and be able to cope with life with the help of these computers. We will be better people, more skilled and able to cope with life outside prison, ”said Ms Dlamini.

 In Kokstad Prison there are women and men, women are a minority. 206 inmates at the prison will benefit from the computers. Mancosa people said they hoped the donation would make life easier for prisoners of education. Mancosa's marketing manager, Wonder-boy Zondi, said they were very happy to help the inmates intend to pursue their studies. He said they were not limited to the donation but would continue to work with the prison on inmate rehabilitation programs.

 One of KZN's top prisons officials, Jabulisile Chonco, has instructed inmates to watch activists such as Mama Charlotte Maxeke, who became the first black woman to graduate at home and abroad. He said they should not look at their circumstances or their history but strive to make a difference in their lives through education.
