According to Kenya Law Petition 570 of 2015, children need special protection because they are among the most vulnerable members of society. They are dependent on others – their parents and families, or the state, when these fail – for care and protection.
For teenage boys who grow up without a father – or a father-figure – and end up in prison, the situation is worse. They often lack a responsible adult to train and guide them in their formative years.
As a result, most end up making wrong decisions that put them at risk of breaking the law and end up in the juvenile correctional system.
