A Malawian woman, Estina Mukasera, who is on death row in China for drug trafficking has complained that she is living under poor jail conditions.

Human Rights Defenders Coalition of Malawi, Board Chairman, Robert Mkwezalamba, said Mukasera raised the complaint through a letter as the coalition fights for her repatriation.

Mkwezalamba said Mukasera, who is pregnant, is facing starvation in jail and lack of access to health services.

He therefore said they will soon engage government to map the way forward.

Mukasera, 29, was arrested in August this year after being caught trafficking two kilograms of cocaine.

In an effort to help the woman, Human Rights Defenders Coalition of Malawi, wrote the Chinese Ambassador to Malawi to discuss about her repatriation.
