This morning I watched an impressive result by our Ethiopian man and women runners in 2016 Dubai Marathon. Our athletes scored impressive almost all Ethiopian result from one to ten (the only mix up was an athlete from Ethiopia that no longer run for us) and two Kenyan brothers. This amazing record and result chart remind me a painful not-so-impressive record of Ethiopian government. The list of Oromo protesters shot by Ethiopian security forces in the past 30 days. 140 plus to be exact.
Yes our golden men and women bring pride and put gold in the neck of our country and the government pays them back by putting bronze ammo’s in the brains of students and farmers.
This is not a time to celebrate, it is time to reflect.
Congratulations to our athletes, even in this bitter time, your contribution and effort is always appreciated!
