The High Court in Mwanza, has pardoned three children, including a Standard Seven pupil jailed for three years last year, after being convicted of grazing in the Grumet Game Reserve area leased to a foreign investor.

The children, Juma Sylvester, 15, who was studying at Mariwanda B. Primary School, Ndamo Wambu, 16, and Hurushi Wambu, 17; were sentenced on August 4, last year, by the then district magistrate, Mr Joseph Maganga. They had pleaded guilty to the charges.
