    1. Excuse me? Grant which mercy? To a thief? Did he have mercy on the owner of the goods he stole? Is that not someone's means of livelihood?? Stella sometimes u amaze me.

      And I know some people will say "there are bigger thieves in government bla bla bla"..as usual. When we should condemn in totality we start to make absurd comparisons to absolve a THIEF of his wrong doings. I just shudder.

    1. OK so every hungry person should enter market and start stealing from other hungry people that are hustling to survive. Right? Then we would all live happily thereafter. Kapish

  12. Do The Crime, Pay The Time....But why are our judges so quick in remanding petty thieves in prison?

  13. erm..... NO! The court wont for reasons ranging from the fact that he has no fixed address and the fact every big thief started "small". Under Islamic law where leniency would have been shown, he also falls short because the yam stolen is clearly not for feeding due to the number and value.

  14. The rich are never sent to jail for stealing billions while the poor are incarcerated for stealing a few tubers of yam. stealing means one thing in the one and another thing in the other
