The Death Penalty

#1
Should it or should it not be abolished?

I for one do not see why a poor country like Kenya should maintain robbers and murderers in prisons for the rest of their lives - eating three square meals a day, using power and water paid for by the taxpayers, getting treated with drugs and doctors paid by me and you, etc etc.

Currently we have over 4,000 prisoners on death row so you can imajini the cost.

Kama Europeans want these sub-humans to live, waje wawachukue waende nao, we are donating them for free.

They should be used to provide cheap labour in major projects like Galana Irrigation, Lamu port, Roads in the Northern frontier. ....
Death row convicts will never be used as cheap labor, look at it, the guys have nothing to lose, the moment they are outside of prison the more their ego to run away, a do or die affair.

We should start a concentration camp where these guys can work. They should work for 10bob a day for projects like Galana scheme, mwea irrigation scheme etc. They should lay cabro tiles in rural areas. They should be trained and get deployed to Somalia to earn parole. Not getting saved and sending us "goodnight" text messages of where i should send money.
But they can't because mzungu want us to be where we are, to benefit himself with grants and loans. Nikisimama president hii lazima iwe effected.
That's the only way our economy can get to 2-world status.

Thaaii!

Some are innocent and one wrongful death is one too many to risk. The Freedom Project in the US estimates that 4% of all death row convicts are innocent. We need to implement DNA technology in past convictions to exonerate such persons in our midst, and as an irreducible minimum prior to handing out the death penalty.

It's a catch 22 here. I believe some of the people on death row are actually innocent for example people who buy phones on the streets only to find that the phones were obtained through robbery with violence.
On the other side, we have cold hearted murderers who for sure deserve no mercy. If it were possible to separate the two groups, the real culprits should be placed in front of a firing squad and their families should made to pay for the bullets.

They never collected any DNA to begin with.
