Meles Zenawi arrested actor Debebe Eshetu Ginbot 7 is led by Berhanu Nega, who was elected mayor of Addis Ababa in 2005. He was also imprisoned for plotting to overthrow the government and fled to the US to set up the organization after being pardoned in 2007. “Debebe Eshetu has never been in any way or form associated with Ginbot 7,” Berhanu said in an e-mailed response to questions today. “This measure by the government, in addition to all the arrests that it has been doing in the past few weeks, is simply a futile attempt to terrorize people into submission.”
