Teddy Afro is a victim hate politics orchestrated by both WOYANES and the diasporas empty head intelligentsias opposition camps… See more… he was a victim of trumped up charges by the woyane cadres and the paying masters of all the billionaire god father including a cabinet misters of woyaney top dogs… on the other hand those empty head intellectuals aboard who condemned him as woyaney agent because he fail to entertain their distorted vision and side with them when he came out from jail… the campaign against him and the out lets like EMF is a living evidence to prove that tolerance, human rights, rule of law and freedoms are equally abused in both camps of the dirty Ethiopian politics! I am a victim of a slender and characters assassinations originated from both camps… this headline is not worthy of a headline mentioning Teddy Afro! But a true reflection of HATERS specially on opposition camp and their hidden agenda on FREEDOM, universal Human rights and freedom choice to life!! Teddy’s attorney, is full fledge woyaney who has been attending the annual meetings of WOYANEY every year.. They all know that!! But they wont get peace until they smell blood on their hands…they are reflection perhaps the other side of the coin of woyaney… SHAME!!!

dear Atse, this is not about Teddy but about Teddy’s lawyer. During Teddy’s trial, Teddy’s lawyer had been given a crucial evidence that could have proven Teddy innocent in form of a recording (of the first judge and his reason for seeking to jail Teddy) but he returned it to the courts (which confiscated the evidence) and changed the judge, and this is one of the few controversial issues surrounding the lawyer, and one can argue that he’s part of the reason why Teddy was incarcerated for this long w/o evidence and blamed for losing such a crucial piece of evidence (without retaining a copy). So, this should come as no surprise and this is a good evidence to show that his lawyer is not removed from the same system he was supposedly fighting against- he condones it, and is part of it. you could have seen this news as a piece that gives you a better picture of all that were involved in the illegal detainment and suppression of evidence in Teddy’s case.

once again, Atse, the lawyer’s name is not mentioned because he’s a nobody in terms of name. If someone said lawyer named Million is running for office, there is no distinguishing him from a million others. However, stating that Teddy’s lawyer is running for office is more like an eye-opener. We know Teddy is a victim of the govt, and if his own lawyer whose dealings had been sketchy in the past comes out to light when he openly runs for office, you sort of have to thank God for divine intervention for letting this man expose himself and who he really works for. Not an advocate for victims. I see why you would get upset, but I can assure you that this article would raise more questions about the guy than about Teddy. Had Teddy been weyene, would he have gone through such injustice? so it’s cool. now you know, now we know what was reported about the lawyer is not a rumor, it’s true.

Misre, The first phase of attacks I can understand, but now, dragging his name with woyanes, it is obvious the opposition camp especially those who believe in our unity.. Shows they have no room of tolerance for those ppl they think they are different from them! .. Actually Million is more significant in Ethiopian contemporary politics, specially those tabloid journalist who design the Head line know him better in terms of the new PRESS law designed by him..as well as his role in Teddy’s so called court case.. This article demonstrates nothing but both camps of the Ethiopian politics propaganda machines have no morale or self regulating ethics when it comes to propagating news. They tend to attack the weak and the voiceless first to install fear in the heart of their readers.. I see no alternative option for progress in free media especially those in the west, they tend to use old fashion tabloid style headlines to send their subliminal hate campaign ..and here yet again Teddy has been a victim of it! When is conscious and consensus prevail in our politics and media campaign…I love Teddy Afro, he should be left out of organised political campaign! He should be given a chance to fully utilise his artistic talents, rather than dragging his name in Ethiopian politics!

1. What the news piece mentions is how Ethio media discussing Minelik’s latest escapade had difficulty getting Teddy’s comment. I wonder if they’ll force him if ppl make a big deal, the savagery of Ethio politics today will not stop short of using death threats against Teddy’s loved ones (again) to undermine public confidence w/Teddy.
2. Oc didn’t write this piece, he just posted it on HIS own page. and the writer(s) of this article are basically revisiting the latest report in Ethiopia. You’re barking at the wrong tree for no reason.
3. The news does NOT say Teddy is running for office or Teddy is a cadre nor does it say he endorses his former lawyer’s campaign.
4. The jist of the news is: The lawyer and the Ethio media are the ones running Teddy’s name for momentum.Teddy’s lawyer (who is otherwise unknown to the public) is running for office using “Teddy’s former lawyer” as a title to help his campaign slogan and give him street cred. The point: ppl who don’t know what he actually did to the case will rationalize a) if he had been Teddy’s lawyer, it means he stands for justice and fights against the bad guys SO he must be a good guy b) he’s running for office now so “we” can trust him, esp. since he “fought” in Teddy’s case.
5. Why is this happening? politicians seeking street cred to stay in power by popularity, since intimidation/jail/death haven’t been as successful recipe to generate love and respect by the ppl. staying in power while being hated is not as fun as getting a makeover to be everybody’s beloved heroes.
6. WHO should you be upset with? Minilik, his campaign advisers and the state-owned media who are trying to milk Teddy’s name for what it’s worth after all the hell he’s been through.
