Bertukan Mideksa returned to Ethiopia yesterday after seven years in the United States. Youth from Ferensay Legasion neighborhood in the capital Addis Ababa organized a very warm red carpet reception to a woman many Ethiopians looked up for inspiration when she was fighting for democracy and human rights in the country before she left the country.
“I am very happy,” said Birtukan.
Her emotion laden humble speech to the crowed that showed up in her mom’s place was touching. And the video of it was in circulation on social media. Take a look below.
