Four police officers from Shambu area have joined the local popular uprising by pointing their gun at the occupying force of the Woyane government in a continued political tension that is gripping the whole region. The police officers were reported to be the local Ex-prison guards and they decided to join the popular uprising after witnessing the unspeakable atrocities being committed in the prison against innocent Oromo civilians.

16-July (Competitor) — Ethiopia’s Muktar Edris won the men’s 5000m this evening on the penultimate day of the IAAF World Junior Championships in Barcelona, giving the East African nation a clean sweep of the gold medals in this discipline. Edris joins compatriot Buze Diriba, who won the women’s 5000m on Wednesday, at the top of the podium.

“I dedicate my gold to the people of Ethiopia,” Edris told the IAAF shortly after his victory. Running in the front through one and two kilometers, Edris seemed poised and in position to take the title.

Between the third and fourth kilometer (3000m was hit in 8:19.38), Edris regained the lead from Eritrea’s Abrar Osman Adem. Fending off a number of competitors, the 18-year-old won in 13:38.95.

Edris said his idol is the great Haile Gebrselassie, someone he hopes to emulate as his career goes on. Read more…

Ethiopia’s dictator in a coma and his wife, Azeb Mesfin, banned from Leaving the country

Azeb has amassed enormous wealth and political influence, which has garnered her a number of enemies. Her fate is very much intertwined with that of Meles. Read more…
