When a person is arrested for committing a crime, the person remains an innocent person until he or she is taken to the court and found guilty by the court.
Such a person would be deemed a suspect and should not be seen as a criminal.
The court must find such a person guilty after the prosecution has proved the crime against the person beyond a reasonable doubt.
This is what is called the presumption of innocence provided under our constitution.
See 36(5)1999 Constitution, 2011 as amended.
