Kenya: famous novelist attacked by robbers

Kenyan novelist Ngugi wa Thiong'o and his wife were attacked in his home by armed men late on Wednesday night in the capital, Nairobi.

[...] An outspoken critic of former Kenyan governments, Professor Thiong'o only returned to Kenya last month after 22 years in self-imposed exile. (source)
A lovely welcome!

UPDATE: Oh shit ... his wife was raped.
