The son of the late Wahome Mutahi “Whispers,”was last night arrested and detained in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa. Patrick was to attend a conference in the country controlled by dictators. He never made an entry into the country as the intelligence of the regime already knew that he was someone who might give them trouble. He was arrested at the Bole International Airport over unspecified charges.
Patrick is an author a fact which might have alerted the radars of the Addis Ababa despots to detain him. There is no free media in Ethiopia with any independent thinker will always find himself arrested and detained for just speaking his mind.
Patrick’s passport was confiscated in the process. Ministry of Foreign Affairs is silent on this matter as the despots in Ethiopia now illegally hold a Kenyan.
