Today hundreds of thousands of people from Ambo, a city 125 km west of Addis Abeba, and its environs came to welcome veteran opposition party leader Dr. Merera Gudina 

 Dr. Merera, chairman of the Oromo Federalist Congress (OFC)  was released from prison last week after spending more than a year a prison


Since then, he has been busy receiving jubilant supporters from all walks of life


But today, he went to his birth place, where he enjoys a massive support

 His supporters came in droves from every vicinity of the city of Ambo


The program at the Ambo stadium lasted only few minutes


And Dr. Merera used the time to thank the people and the police for peacefully coordinating the massive turnout to welcome him
