Ethiopia: new book from a jailed politician

Ethiopian Paradox informs us about a new book written by the jailed mayor of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Dr. Berhanu Nega, “As or When the Dawn of Freedom Breaks”:
“It makes compelling reading when the author is in jail and his pen, head, heart and spirit- together and in unison defy the will of the jailors and his own physical limitations walled in a small prison room. The spirit with which it is written is rich and generous in calling all those in the struggle not to employ feelings of hatred and motives of vengeance and other destructive impulses in their struggles to bring about irreversible and sustainable change with the core engine of freedom and democracy.”
