PICTORIAL: AMBO CROWD GIVES DR. MERERA GUDINA A HERO’S WELCOME: Simannaa ho’aa Dr Mararaa fi Bar.Caalaa akkasumaas namoota mana hidhaati hikaamanif tasifame istaadiyoomii Ambootti.
(addisstandard) —-Today hundreds of thousands of people from Ambo, a city 125 km west of Addis Abeba, and its environs came to welcome veteran opposition party leader Dr. Merera Gudina
Dr. Merera, chairman of the Oromo Federalist Congress (OFC) was released from prison last week after spending more than a year a prison
Since then, he has been busy receiving jubilant supporters from all walks of life
But today, he went to his birth place, where he enjoys a massive support
His supporters came in droves from every vicinity of the city of Ambo
The program at the Ambo stadium lasted only few minutes
And Dr. Merera used the time to thank the people and the police for peacefully coordinating the massive turnout to welcome him
So this is the speech of Dr. Merera? He went all the way to the heartland of OromoRevolution after he got released from Prison and did not even deliver anything new? He needs to put an offer to the regime in clear terms (I was expecting an offer at his speech today in Ambo) and it has to be public. No backdoor deals!
