Ethiopia’s long distance athlete, Feyisa Lilesa, who became famous for making an anti-government gesture while participating in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games has finally been reunited with his family in the United States, where he is currently based after being granted asylum. He won the silver medal in the men’s marathon in Rio after finishing the 42-kilometer race. He later claimed that his life was in danger. He sought for asylum in the United States and has been living there since leaving Rio. He received his wife and two kids at the Miami International Airport. It was the first time meeting them since he left Ethiopia to Brazil – a period that stretched to seven months back. He remains concerned about injustices in Ethiopia and has promised to continue to ‘‘speak out.’‘ displayAdvert("mpu_3") As I celebrate this small personal victory, I want to make sure that we don't forget the plight of millions of Oromo and other Ethiopians who are still being killed, beaten, imprisoned, dispossessed and kept in poverty.
