Obang Metho on Athlete Feyisa Lilesa | Video


Mr Obang speaking on Facebook Live about athlete Feyisa Lilesa, who won Silver in this year’s Rio Olympic in men’s Marathon, crossed the finishing line with his hands crossed as a sign and the symbol of civil resistance in Ethiopia.

We must work together to build a new Ethiopia where there is justice, freedom and equitable opportunity for all.

We must resist the traps set by the ethnic apartheid regime of the TPLF/EPRDF to keep us divided. If we are to reach our common goals, we must revisit some of our assumptions.

May God protect all our precious people and beautiful country!!

  2. Ethiopian diplomats , Ethiopian airlines pilots , Ethiopian athletes , Ethiopian international students and so on had been seeking asylum whenever they go out of Ethiopia for 20+ years.For the last 2 decades Each year More than 200,000 Ethiopian People go to worst places like Yemen to become refugees countless die during the journey. . Some go to huge extents to save their lives. Not too long ago A co-pilot on an Ethiopian Airlines flight bound for Rome hijacked the airliner early Monday morning and flew it to Geneva, Switzerland, looking for asylum.
    The man, an Ethiopian in his early 30s, was arrested when the plane landed at Geneva International Airport, police said. The 202 passengers and crew aboard the Boeing 767-300 were not harmed. Ethiopian Airline pilot gets 19 years for hijacking plane.

    An Ethiopian Airlines pilot has been convicted in absentia of hijacking his own plane and flying it to Geneva, 13 months after he surrendered to police there and sought asylum.

    The high court in Addis Ababa issued its ruling on Monday and said it would sentence Hailemedhin Abera Tegegn on Friday. If he ever returns to his home country he could face up to 20 years in jail.

    Hailemedhin, second-in-command on the Feb. 17, 2014 flight to Rome, took control of the aircraft when the main pilot left the cockpit for a toilet break, Swiss police said.

    He then sent a coded signal announcing he had hijacked his own plane.

    With the jet on the tarmac, an unarmed Hailemedhin scrambled down an emergency rope and surrendered to police without harming the 193 passengers on board the Boeing aircraft, 139 of them Italians, 11 Americans and four French.

    Swiss police have said Hailemedhin asked for asylum because he did not feel safe in Ethiopia.

    Opposition politicians and rights campaigners often accuse the government of stifling dissent, a charge dismissed by the government.

    Authorities say there have been growing numbers of people from north and east Africa traveling to Europe to flee poverty and conflicts — though Hailemedhin left behind a well-paid job on the flagship airline in one of Africa’s fastest-growing economies.

    Ethiopian officials said at the time Addis Ababa may ask for his extradition.
