“Although incarcerated, I still have hope in the future. I wanted to use the free education offered in prison to achieve my goals,” says Samson Anunda, who is still on remand on charges of defi lement.
 
Anunda emerged the best candidate of Luzira Maximum Security. Despite the psychological hurdles prisoners encounter while in jail, the 35-year-old scored aggregate 10.
 
He scored aggregate 10 with a C3 in English, D2 in science, D1 in social studies and C4 in mathematics.
 
Anatoli Biryomumaisho, the head teacher Luzira Inmate’s School, says Upper Prison Inmate’s Primary School registered 63 candidates of which three passed in first grade, 37 scored second grade, 11 in third grade, seven in fourth and five were ungraded.
 
Other excellent performers were Naveed Ahmed, a Pakistan national serving a death sentence, who scored aggregate 18. And, 60-year-old Ramadan Magara, sentenced to a 14-year-jail, scored aggregate 27.
 
Naveed, who could not speak any other language apart from Urdu the Pakistan national language, Greek and Spanish at the time of his conviction said he enrolled in the prison education system to learn English.
