The Renowned Ethiopian Politician Bekele Gerba Blames Obama

In her latest report, NPR's Michele Klemene talked to Bekele Gerba, an opposition figure in Ethiopia who has recently been released after four years imprisonment on terrorism charges. Bekele Gerba used the opportunity to air his grievances against the Obama administration for its  "solidarity" with what he called a "repressive and authoritarian regime which is very much disliked by its own people." He also stated that the Oromo are "politically marginalized and are being pushed off their land as the government makes deals with international investors" and called on American consumers to boycott products by these investors.

Gerba described himself as a Christian who deeply believes in the principles of non-violence espoused by Dr. Martin Luther King. This comes as no surprise as he spent his jail years devouring the works of the reverend's works which he has translated in to Afan Oromo in a soon to be published book.
