D. left Bujumbura at the end of 2015 due to the unrest there. He was arrested a few months later in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and accused of being one of the Burundi rebels based in the DRC. He was subsequently sentenced to five years in prison. He has already spent four years in the Mpimba prison, which was built for 800 inmates but currently holds 4400.

He is still imprisoned. Here, he tells Prison Insider about his living conditions.
