It was widely reported yesterday in different media outlets  that the renowned journalist, Temesgen Desalegn, was rushed to the nearest hospital with unknown reasons. However, his brother, Tariku Desalegn, today in his facebook post claims that Temesgen Desalegn went back to his prison cell some time last night.

Mr. Desalegn, a brother of the imprisoned journalist, points out that neither the prison administrators nor hospital officials could tell him the conditions and whereabouts of his brother. Nevertheless, Mr. Desalegn says that,  accord to his sources from the Batu hospital, journalist Temesgen Desalegn has been secretly taken back to the notorious Ziway prison last night around 7:30pm.

Most of the Ethiopian people within the country and in the diaspora are left in limbo without understanding the conditions of the beloved journalist. Recently, it was well remembered that the Ethiopian regime had claimed that they do not know the whereabouts of Mr. Desalegn for ten days. However, after  lots of pressure from the  imprisoned journalist’s family members and a social media campaign, the Ethiopian government had bowed to the pressure and finally admitted they have had Journalist Temesgen Desalegn in their prison cell.
