Kenya Police arrest 76-year old Ethiopian man, a suspected Drug Lord

Kenya Police arrest 76-year old Ethiopian man, a suspected Drug Lord

By Cyrus Ombati

NAIROBI, KENYA: An Ethiopian national who was among drug lords deported last month over involvement in narcotics trafficking has been arrested in Nairobi's Eastleigh area.

Police say Solomon Walde Haulu, 76 sneaked back to the country at undisclosed date and hid in Eastleigh where he was arrested on Thursday night. He had been deported on June 11 for being in Kenya illegally and over accusations of being a drug trafficker.

He was linked to local and international drug trafficking network despite his old age. He also operated a major gang in Nigeria section of Mathare slums, which police say is the main supply point of hard drugs in the city.

According to police, he sneaked back to Kenya from Uganda through the Malaba border and he did not have documents at the time of his arrest.

Haulu was expected in court on friday as police continue with their investigations.

"He seems to have either used an orthodox route here or he hid the documents to avoid being known how he came but we will know," said head of Speacial Crimes Prevention Unit that arrested him following a tip off. He was found in a house next to the one he used to stay before his deportation.

This guy is a husband of c’est moi senait.
Finally they got him. What’s gonna happen to arroggit senait?
Lately she was acting so nervous and erratic.
No wonder she was just worried about her drug dealer husband. And she must have run out of her dailly dose of drug.
Anyway, I will say this guy was the Pablo Escobar of Africa!

Weyyyy Gud!!

This is what has become of some Ethiopian Geriatrics! has it’s fair share of such folks who lived since the coronation of HIM yet talk nonsense here 24/7 such as Gragn Ah’Morsi, Ash, Ethiopiawinet, Addis Zemen etc etc :):)

Here is a song dedicated to such folks:


Tell me what has become of my life
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame
They’re throwing me in a class full of lame …
I can’t believe this is the land from which I came
You know I really do hate to say it
The TPLFs don’t wanna see
But if Minelik was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Brick head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, speculation
Creating a shameful nation

All I wanna say is that Geriatrics & Co get a grip!
Michael Jackson :)

Wayane opts for centuries gave different impressions to the outside world calling themselves Princess but now we know how extreme they are. Instead of being good citizens they abuse the law, they deny the right of others to worship in Axum. How extreme they can be?? Clealry this man is linkedto Azeb.

Speaking of age class, you reminded me of an old highschool adage we used to call “girls geography".
Lets see where you and that arrogit senait end up categorized.
I might have forgotten part of it, and if someone could remember feel free to add the missing part.
It goes like this,…
Women between 18-25, are not fully discovered and wild like Africa,
Women between 26 and 32 are fully discovered and scientifically perfect like America. “I was hoping to find you AP here, but since recently you’ve shown some sign to end up a couple of stages below”
Women between 34 and 39 are like France, well experienced but arrogant!
Women between 40 and 50, are like Germany, they lost the war but not the hope. “AP could fit here".
Women between 51 and 60, are like England, glorious to the past. “senait?”
Women 60 and above are like the cold war era Russia, very cold and nobody wants them. That’s deffinatlly senait!

He will the oldest Ethiopian to ever been caught in this type of crime.
Funny no Kenyan – leave than lonely border police- was arrested in this drug bust. Was that a coincident? Imagine all these illigal foreigners mostly Nigerians roaming the streets of Nairobi unnoticed. That is hard to believe.
I bet someone stepped on some official’s toes or didn’t pay his dues on time.

This person is not an Ethiopian he might have been an Eritrean. Ethiopians at age 76 are in monastries/mosque, unless physically disabled, to pray,fast and reconcile with God. Now, this person is not even showing his document to Kenyan authorities because he did not want to expose his true identity. Most probably he is involved in raising funds and working with Somlia Al Shebab group. Two years ago, an Eritrean man of over 70 years was arrested in Addis Ababa on spy charge with documents while on his way to the Addis Ababa airport to depart. Could he be the same person?

LMAO@ all the responses above!


Ha ha ha ha! Chewata Chemrehal Bakih? Up by 7% from your last post that I read when I was on this site!… Your logical reasoning has dropped by 99% though, not that you had high score on that department to begin with! :P

Nice try but in your category of 40-50 are my Mommy & all her siblings. Daddy is over 50 and still at working age, not a retired 75 year old geriatric like you & Gragn Ah’Morsi. :)):))

AZ, unless you work hard and set up your retirement business aka your tourism Firm, you will end up a drug mule at the age of 75 like your fellow geriatric.

Ha ha ha ha! Thanks for the laugh Long live!! Until next time lol
