Man Who Was in Prison for 17 Years Released, Finds Wife Faithful Waiting, She Welcomes Him

In a heartwarming moment at Embu Prisons, joy and celebration filled the air as Joseph Njenga, who had been incarcerated for 17 years, finally tasted the sweet freedom he had long awaited.

Njenga’s journey began in 2007 when he was arrested and imprisoned for robbery with violence, after being found in possession of stolen property.


However, in a recent interview  Njenga maintained his innocence, asserting that while he was in possession of the stolen vehicle, he was not involved in the theft itself. He attributed his misfortune to the influence of the wrong circle of friends.

“I was arrested for being in possession of the stolen property. I could not explain to the court how the vehicle ended up in my possession,” Njenga expressed, highlighting his confusion as a first-time offender navigating the legal proceedings.

Now, after nearly two decades, Njenga emerges from the prison gates, ready to embark on a new chapter of his life. His wife, waiting eagerly, envelops him in a long and warm embrace, marking the end of years spent apart.

Accompanied by a clergyman, the couple renews their vows just outside the prison walls, with prayers and well-wishes ushering in this fresh start.

“I am so happy because my husband has been released from jail after 17 years. I have been waiting for him for all these years. I have persevered a lot, but now he is here,” expressed Njenga’s wife, Joyce, whose unwavering faith sustained her throughout their separation.

As they set their sights on Nyandarua County for their new beginning, their story echoes that of others who have faced wrongful imprisonment. It serves as a poignant reminder of the resilience of the human spirit and the enduring power of love and faith, even in the darkest of times.
