When i spoke with mom yesterday, Joshua was still in prison, so no hospital. I’ve not heard anything yet today.
Because of riots in Kinshasa these last days the authorities have closed the internet and text messages. It’s not so easy for mom to communicate with us in Norway. She hasn’t checked her email for days.
It’s also a curfew and mom has to stay indoors as much as possible. There is a recommendation to stay inside, but she has to go to the prison every day.
I’ve also heard that there is no electricity, but that’s not unusual for her. We just have to hope it ends so the situation can be a little easier than it is now.
That’s all I know so far. I’m anxious to hear from her later today.
