William Kondowe has been waiting two years for his trial on charges of car theft and murder and, like many prisoners, he has struggled to maintain his links to life outside the prison walls.

    1. Please we need another prison documentary

    2. 6mint into the video and I had to pause and write this… best English speaking African country I have seen so far…Am African too and a proud🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭we speak English too but these guys are on a different level ✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼

    3. You reap what you sow

    4. I'm blessed by this.
      Didn't know such Things happen in ZAMBIA 🇿🇲

    5. Destroying the young generation is a form of colonization to paralyze Africa. The disgusting part is our own people are repeating the same sick legacy from the European and western countries.

    6. It’s the colonial legacy that our own people repetitions if not made it worse. The entire African forget to use their heart and conscious and follow on policy that is inherited from the colonizer . Wake the hell up and remember your own culture. Each one reach one and teach one .

    7. This was so heart rending! I felt all the emotions in Mutinta's sigh when he asked her if she's happy with her new husband 😔. I was rooting for him, and then he dies at the end. Even more heart rending

    8. Covid-19 would have ran rampant in that prison if inmates or prison staff brought it in

    9. Oh my gosh ! The ENDING ! I got chills!

    10. This william guy is those types of people who grew up spoiled and messed up their lives trying to cop American thug life

    11. Sad end.I thought William would change and get back together with his ex wife.The woman loved him with his dark side.

    12. There will be violent earthquakes, and famines and plagues in various places, and there will be terrifying sights and great signs from heaven.

      Luke 21:11 Then many will fall away, betray one another, and hate one another. Many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. This good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. For at that time there will be great distress, the kind that hasn’t taken place from the beginning of the world until now and never will again. Unless those days were cut short, no one would be saved. But those days will be cut short because of the elect. “If anyone tells you then,‘ See, here is the Messiah! ’Or,‘ Over here! ’Do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. Take note: I have told you in advance. So if they tell you, ‘See, he’s in the wilderness! ’Don’t go out; or, ‘See, he’s in the storerooms! Do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. “Immediately after the distress of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shed its light ; the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the peoples of the earth will mourn; and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. He will send out his angels with a loud trumpet, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. “Now concerning that day and hour no one knows – neither the angels of heaven nor the Son – except the Father alone. As the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. For in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah boarded the ark. They didn’t know until the flood came and swept them all away. This is the way the coming of the Son of Man will be.

      Matthew 24: 10-14, 21-27, 29-31, 35-39'

    13. I was like ugh, why am I able to hear what they are saying? and then realised..shit..I'm

    15. Does anyone know the soundtrack at the very end?

    16. A facility designed for 250 people is now hosting 1000 people ish our government should really do something about this and to make matters worse 😠 you have to wait to years for trial

    17. Nairobi 😔😔😔

    18. What's up with the cop guy cock blocking the dude everytime

    19. A secpnd chance rarely comes by. You should take it and do your best. Unlike our friend.

    20. Jezebel's .. what sort of nonsense. Not a woman to be trusted.. she will always turn. When an opportunity serves her right

    21. Is this guy really a prisoner

    22. 🚨Taking advantage of the complicated situation of Covid and the World is fighting against Covid's epidemic, the CCP continues to send sea-going ships to continue harassing and encroaching on the 200-nautical-mile territorial sea of Asean countries in the South China Sea. Vietnam and Asean call on the UN, international law, the United States and the Allies to take measures to stop the CCP's threats.🇺🇸🇪🇺🇯🇵🇫🇷🇬🇧🇦🇺🇨🇦🇮🇳

    23. Does this Channel ever post anything positive about our continent? So many beautiful and inspiring things we have as a continent but…smh

    34. This guy needed a jail term. He was released too early


    36. And for my fellow brothers don't wait until prison teaches you that freedom is one of the most important things. Learn from this plz and avoid anything that can lead you into prison

    37. I was really vouching for him… but my dude just went out and stole a car… really William? you naaa mean?

    38. This man got a second chance at life which most don’t get, yet he chose to ruin it.

    39. Car thieves are always violent in their pursuit, it makes sense that he was gunned down.
      Zambia is a very beautiful country though, people are nice, there's almost no difference with Uganda
