(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!
