Saukira Released

Saukira was a paralyzed prisoner that we met when we visited Malawi in June of this year.  She had to be carried around by her fellow prisoners as she did not have a wheelchair.  We provided her with a wheelchair.  We also filed an appeal to the High Court seeking to set aside her sentence due to her medical condition.  The process should have taken 3 to 4 months, but God intervened.  Thanks to the excellent advocacy of Paralegal Officer Moses Chione and Lawyer Wesley Namasala, the High Court decided to hear the case on an expedited basis.  Upon hearing her case, the High Court decided to set aside her sentence.  She was released today.  The photo above is of her and her husband.
