Should we accept ex-convicts back into society?

Residents speak out on whether or not society should be accepting of ex-convicts after they have served their prison sentence.

Ayanda Mlahleki said: “Yes, everyone deserves a second chance. When they are in prison they get rehabilitated, others are even there wrongfully. I know from experience of a close loved one. We shouldn’t judge.”

Tryphina Mothwa said: “Yes, people change. If he or she sees their mistakes then I don’t see a problem in accepting them back into the community.”

Mpho Mothebe said: “It depends if the person is rehabilitated and they show remorse. If yes, then we as a community should accept them back as one of us.”
