UniMak added IT Course to the previous 3 certificate courses for inmates at the Makeni Correctional Centre

The University of Makeni (UniMak) has added Information Technology (IT) to the previous 3 certificate courses for inmates at the Makeni Correctional Centre.

The University of Makeni (UniMak) has added Information Technology (IT) to the previous 3 certificate courses for inmates at the Makeni Correctional Centre.

This add- on was made on Sunday 11th August, 2019. Now, deserving inmates have four certificate course choices- Agriculture, Entrepreneurship, Community Development Studies, and Information Technology.

“Each of the courses will last for six months, and at the end, certificates will be given to inmates who were able to complete the courses. However, it will not be indicated in the certificates that they acquired the knowledge behind bars,” said Superintendent Salieu Turay- Officer- in- Charge of the Makeni Correctional Centre.

Supt. Turay added that he was not going to get tired of appealing with the powers that be at Unimak to keep adding the courses for inmates.

Mentioning that the courses are offered to inmates on scholarship basis, he said Unimak provided cartons of books, pens, and exercise books for the inmates.

“My appreciation to Unimak cannot be expressed in words. They have taken the lead in helping us in the rehabilitation of inmates. We call on other universities to do same.”

According to the Head of Department- Development Studies, Mr. Unisa Kamara, “as of next week classes, it would be one computer to an inmates during the lectures”.
