A British woman, who spent six days in a Ugandan police cell after being arrested for none payment of Sheraton hotel bills, says life in the police cells is shocking and dangerous for human life.



Gill Hope, the chairperson of Prosperity Studios International, a US based property managements company, compares life in the Ugandan police cells to a kraal. She says there is urgent need to rehabilitate the facilities.



Gill, was arrested last Wednesday for failing to pay 3 million shillings and was detained at Kampala Central Police station. In the cells, according to Gill, she was provided with a 2 inch mattress, exposed to mosquitoes and was not allowed to change cloths.



Gill says she also failed to take a shower in the cells since there is no running water.

The Briton has offered to provide mattresses and install showers, starting with Kampala Central Police station, immediately after the charges against her are dropped.



Gill says saboteurs of her projects aimed at helping 1.7 million orphans in Uganda engineered her arrest. Before her arrest, Gill had been to Rukungiri, Mbale, Tororo, Jinja, Fort Portal and Kasese on her mission to extend services to orphaned children. Gill who has cleared her bills at Sheraton has threatened to sue the management of the hotel for mistreatment.
