Waruguru, who does laundry services for a living, is seeking justice for his son as she cannot even afford Sh6,000 for a scan.

Macharia's mother has not been able to file a formal complaint at the Changamwe Police Station until now as she is caught up with taking care of her son.

A 35-year-old man has been stuck in Port Reitz hospital after he was allegedly assaulted by police enforcing curfew on May 23, in Magongo area, Mombasa.

Joseph Macharia now uses a pipe to feed on water, porridge, and milk as he cannot eat any solid foods after sustaining head and back injuries.

The victim's mother, Annerose Waruguru, says she has to stay near her son and hold his hands to avoid Macharia from pulling off his feeding pipes when he gets angry.
