Ethiopia's Olympic heroes ready to join Tigray war – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Ethiopian Olympic heroes Haile Gebrselassie and Feyisa Lilesa say they are ready to go to the front line in the war against rebel forces.

Their announcement comes after Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said he would go to the front to lead the war.

Tigrayan rebels say they are advancing towards the capital Addis Ababa.

Germany and France have become the latest countries to advise their citizens to leave Ethiopia, as the civil war escalates.

Looks like things are tumbling down and it is getting worse for ethiopians. While it is almost too late for a dialogue, it is better late than never.

Western media didn't say anything when the nobel prize winner Obama destroyed Libya and Syria. But they are criticizing PM Abiy for the fact that he defended his country from terrioris. Abiy Created peace with Eritrea and started smooth relation with Somalia. He played an important role in creating peace in South Sudan. And for this He got the prize. But the prize should not hold him back from defending his country.

#Nomore
Why do you think A NOBEL PEACE PRIZE winner #Abiy Ahmed (phd)and A Great athlete ,a legend for that matter ,and a successful business man #Haile Gebresillasie would choose war ?
Stop suggesting a "one size fits all" solution for different problems. Do your job properly.
This is a war for justice. A war for freedom.
We are saying
