President Uhuru Kenyatta is alleged to have summoned those who ‘processed’ a Moi University student jailed for insulting him.
Impeccable sources reveal the president called several directors handling his media to ‘know’ who complained on his behalf over Wadi’s supposed offensive posts. This after the president got wind that at least an ambassador of a major world power became critical of the manner the president is handling the so called Facebook critics.
So furious was the President after the Wadi case blew out of proportion, prompting veteran columnist and editor Macharia Gaitho to personally write about it in an article he condemned the President of petty witch hunting.
Wadi, now a week old behind bars, is said to be held in isolation as the government has blocked visits to him.
Meanwhile, a source at the Athi River Prison has revealed the mother of the jailed student was yesterday denied a chance to see him. The agonising mother, who had travelled from Uganda, could not see Wadi as prison authorities are under intense pressure not to make him see anyone.
When Wadi was visited by blogger Robert Alai, it is alleged he told the blogger he had been tortured and even showed visible torture marks, which, following recent events, can only be said to be true as the government completely cuts off any communication with the student.
Wadi is alleged to have pleaded guilty after he was threatened with murder by the flying squad and anti-terrorism police, accompanied by a militia group allied linked to Statehouse operative Paul Kobia.
On social media, a known ally to the President called Paul Kobia, also alleged to have killed former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s son Fidel Odinga, had posted that they his own militia was out to punish Wadi and even offered a reward of 500k to whoever who could deliver Wadi to the Police.
A team of lawyers are working on his appeal case as dozen human rights organizations condemn the manner he was convicted. Article 19, a human rights organization, is said to be keenly following the Wadi case and may have formally requested to be enjoined in the case.
