Rachel Hail with a Facebook video chat and her response

Ethiopian opposition leader Merera Gudina has been freed after more than a year in detention. Merera becomes the first ‘political prisoner’ to be released since Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn announced on 3 January that the government will pardon several convicted politicians and those with cases in court in a bid to foster national cohesion. Prison authorities told his family that he was released on Wednesday morning and allowed to go back home. displayAdvert("mpu_3") Merera, the leader of the Oromo Federalist Congress, has been in prison since December 2016 and was facing multiple charges, including association with terrorist groups. He denied the charges. Free at last!
