4,000 Commutations of Sentence

This article discusses the decision of Mwai Kibaki (the president of Kenya) to commute the sentences of his country's 4,000 death row inmates to life in prison. In an official statement, Kibaki cited the "undue mental anguish" suffered by those sentenced to death as well as rules which have made "idleness" a "negative impact on prison discipline". No one has been executed in Kenya since 1987.
