Teddy Afro fans to face charges

Teddy Afro is making the headlines in Friday morning papers and one reported about the twenty fans detained during the singer’s court appearance on April 29.

Negadras, an Amharic weekly, revealed that twenty fans of the singer were denied appeal for bail when they appeared before the Addis Ababa City First Instance Court on April 30.

Among the charges brought upon them are wearing T-shirts with the singer’s picture, provoking a riot and distributing ‘unnecessary’ leaflets.  

They are to appear before the court to face the charges on May 13 and 14.

The heavily armed security-obsessed police swept down the Lidta area on two days of the singer’s appearance and arrested several people, of whom some released later.
