Posted: Muddee/December 15, 2016 · Finfinne Tribune | Gadaa.com | Comments

(OPride) – Top Oromo opposition leader, Merera Gudina, is being held in solitary confinement – in a dark room with no window – 24 hours a day, his lawyer Wondimu Ibsa said on Wednesday.

It was the first time anyone has seen the leader of Oromo Federalist Congress (OFC) in 15 days.

“Merera came to the visitation area handcuffed,” Wondimu, who visited Merera at the notorious Maekelawi prison today along with another attorney appointed by OFC, told the Voice of America Afaan Oromo program. The only time Merera can leave the room is when the prison guards take him out for bathrooms, the lawyer said.
