In a Facebook post, Mahere said she has “a cough and fever”. During her time at Chikurubi Maximum Prison, Mahere said she was placed in an isolation cell at the quarantine sections.

 

Despite having been in an “isolation cell” and the “quarantine section” at Chikurubi Maximum Prison, I have tested positive for COVID-19, following seven days of pretrial incarceration,” she said.
“While I currently only have a cough and fever, I have chosen to share my results to draw attention to the deplorable state of our prison conditions and the very real threat faced by inmates at these facilities. I believe that in my own life, all experiences good and bad have been willed by God to teach me something deeper about humanity” Mahere further added.
