    I think giving himself up was the right thing to do. It is common some people panic and run when this kind of incident happens. But taking responsibility is a sign of maturity. One thing for sure is that Teddy needs to be careful with his actions. As a loved celebrity all eyes are on him.
    Fetia I think Teddy did well coming back home. It does not mean he is fool as you think but ,it shows that he loves his country. I think we need many more like him:)

    the question is can EPRDF be trusted whether to decide he did it or not?
    the answer is NO.
