Yassin Juma, whose real name is Collins Juma Osemo, had written an emotional letter revealing heartbreaking conditions he faced in detention.
”It is my 47th day in detention at Aradar detention cell. It is also my 7th day since I was diagnosed with Covid-19. I am currently being held at block (W) with 68 other Covid-19 positive inmates with no access to medication in overcrowded cells, no running water and no diet to assist us with our condition. My health is failing with each passing day, and I am not sure if I will make it. It is 50-50 chance with coronavirus but the conditions in detention make my survival chances less.” Yassin wrote.
