  • Athelet Feyisa will get hero’s welcome, government official

    The Olympic runner from Ethiopia who defiantly made an anti-government gesture at the finish line of the men’s marathon Sunday will receive a “heroic welcome” and not face prosecution, a government spokesman said Monday.

    Feyisa Lilesa crossed his arms above his head to draw attention to deadly protests in Oromia, his home region in Ethiopia, as he secured his second-place win at the end of the event of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, the Associated Press reported. He told reporters that he may be killed or imprisoned if he ever returns home, where protesting is “very dangerous.”

    “If I go back to Ethiopia, the government will kill me,” Lilesa told Sports Illustrated. “If not, they will charge me. After that, if they not charge, they will block in the airport in immigration. I want to move to another country and try to go to another country.”

    Ethiopia’s Communications Minister Getachew Reda told CNN that Lilesa is an “Ethiopian hero” who “shouldn’t at all be worried” to return to his home country. “I can assure you nothing is going to happen to his family nothing is going to happen to him,” Reda said.

  • Ethiopia takes delight in watching Turkish drama series

    In recent years, Turkish TV series have become popular in Balkan, Latin American and Arab countries. Now, Ethiopia is following their footsteps, as two prominent Turkish productions are being aired and dubbed in the local language

    Everyone in this family of three is excited. From their apartment living room neighborhood of Summit in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, they are about to be mesmerized, and transported to another world of Turks fluently speaking Amharic, Ethiopia's national language.

    A fresh wind blows amid the hurly-burly of the bustling 4-million-strong metropolis that lives under a state of emergency, which has led access to mobile data connections being banned.

    The Ethiopian government has imposed martial law since mid-October to help subdue months of violent anti-government protests.
