Ethiopia: Teddy Afro denied bail

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.”

    hi! I heard a lot about Teddy afro hit and run car accident since last year but i am not sure about the information because I live in us. teddy is one of the best singer and writer that telles us to love our country and he is triying tell us love can do any thing even it can croos border. i tell you whatever happen to him he will be free. we know wayane set up him and this known that we expect from wayane.remeber Prime minster Melese told us opposition party should go to jell becuse of they are murder and then he let them free becuse he know his own party killing Ethiopian people.So do u think teddy hit and walk away? please in the name of god leave him alone. he is such lovely young, ceative and excellent pesonality that i never see in other famous singer in ethiopia. we love u teddy Afro

    I think no one scape from what is real. He may/may not the doer of that action but, facts around the issue seem FALSE.
    The main thing however is WHAT he told. I know, he is not such a lay man. So what he told is correct and not far from fact and should ACCEPTED by myself I judge he is clean from the BLOOD and should get release, whatever you say this is mine.
    Thank you!!!!!!
    And best and best and best and best For:
    TEWODROS THIRD EXPECTED BY US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
