Development Channel sponsors release of long held prisoners in Africa

Published

on

The justice system in Africa is undoubtedly one of the worst in the world only catering to the rich and powerful. Africa’s high level corruption is most evident in its inhuman justice system where you are arrested and incarcerated mostly because you are poor and cannot give money to the police or the magistrates after being arraigned for mostly fictitious charges with absolutely no evidence.

Development Channel as part of its Global Defender initiative embarked on sponsored project justice which was designed to help release from prisons, persons who had been wrongly held, lack assistance with bail conditions or simply needed legal representation. Hundreds of African lawyers were retained to embark on this task and the mission proved not only successful but highly insightful.

Some of the most painful stories captured from the released prisoners include a young man who was arrested by a patrol van walking down his street and found himself in prison for 4 years without any charges until the Development Channel project released him. Another was a woman who had been in prison for 5 years simply because of a verbal misunderstanding with a friend whose boyfriend is a police officer.

Development Channel hopes to continue Global Defender’s project justice despite the enormous resources it takes from the organization.

He performed several of his all-time bangers like ‘Coupe Bibamba’ and ‘Karoline’, allowing his scores of fans who had thronged Victoria hall to reminisce on the good old days as most unleashed their almost forgotten Lingala dance moves.

The star who was performing with his whole entire Paris band also brought out guest acts like BM that he has just collaborated with on the hit song “Rosalina” that has since gone viral all over the world.

The star also shared his stage with Ugandan stars including Eddy Kenzo, Dr. Jose Chameleon and Levixone among others.

Revelers stayed on their feet throughout the two and a half hour long show as the Congolese maestro delivered an energetic performance.

Awilo had last performed in Uganda 20 years ago and grew to love the country so much that he even infused some Luganda in some of his biggest hits. On Friday evening at the Serena, it was the happy reunion all had hoped for.

The show which was organised by Cents Events and sponsored by Singleton ended at midnight yet even at this time, most of those in attendance still wanted more.

Here are some photos from the show.
