Africa Weekly, has reported on female prisoners in Burkina, reporting that they have no choice but to keep their infants with them in detention.
The report detailed that the infants share cells with their mother’s and other female inmate’s, who are jailed for theft, mutilation and murder. What makes it even worse for the children in the cramped cells, authorities do not provide them food, medicine or sanitary products.
Then in the island of Djerba, off the coast of Tunisia, even the dead face discrimination. In this area, there are separate places of burial for light-skinned and dark-skinned inhabitants.
The discrimination is in the form of skin colour, the darker-skinned are buried in cemeteries for so-called ‘slaves’, while lighter-skinned are buried in a separate part of the graveyard for so-called ‘free people’.
