Teddy Afro dominates Great Run

Addis hosted the 2008 Toyota Great Ethiopian Run today. Over a distance of 10 km, more than 32,000 participants wearing red and yellow T-shirts gave the city a colorful and vibrant color. Runners, joggers and even a few walkers took part. There were dancers on the route, publicity stunts, plenty of entertainment.img_2672

 

But the event was also used as venue to call for Teddy Afro’s release. Even though there was   a heavy paramilitary police presence, runners mounted an impromptu protest, shouting “Teddy is innocent” and demanding his release. Shouts of “Free Teddy’ was heard recurrently.img_2702

One music shop around Urael church was playing Teddy Afro’s songs throughout.img_2646
