For a group of juvenile offenders in the Western Cape they will for the first time have the tools, writing and layout skills to be able to print their own newspaper in prison.

The prisoners at the Hawequa Youth Correctional Facility in Wellington received 15 slick flat screen computers yesterday.

Southern African Media and Gender Institute (Samgi) will facilitate the training of select group inmates on how to use basic computer programmes, while simultaneously educating them about gender issues and respect for women.

Finance and Tourism MEC Lynne Brown says that for the juveniles’ computer skills could enable them to play and active role in society.
