Nazret links to an article about the Ethiopian musician Teddy Afro: “The Federal High Court of Ethiopia has this morning denied bail for the release of Tewodros Kassahun (Teddy Afro). The 30-year-old sensational singer, who is accused of a hit and run homicide, will spend the duration of his trial in prison.”

    What about the massacre of Ethiopians since 1884 and onwards? Had Meles and his group trialed for this massacre and brutal actions that they are imposing in Ogaden and Ethiopia? NO!
    But they are throwing in jail a living LEGEND, a TRUE ETHIOPIAN, THE ONE WHO PREACH LOVE, FREEDOM AND UNITY WITH COURAGE and FACING THE BRUTAL REGIME, for a hit and run that took place two years ago with no witness, no evidence…nothing!!
    Gebremariam ena Martha, where are you? in U.S? Please try to learn english and improve your knowledge so that you can express yourself clearly.
    Thank you sebleye!
    Teddy = Ethiopia!!
