Would you describe for us the conditions you had while being held in brutal Robben Island Prison? - I was confined to a small cell without a bed or plumbing; I was forced to do hard labor in a quarry; I could write and receive a letter once every six months, and once a year I was allowed to meet with a visitor for 30 minutes.
