  1. Comment: It is obvious that with out any crime they are prisoned in the Charge of Ethiopian government. that might be a game for ignoring from election. that opposition party have full of support from the greate oromoo peoples. so the ruling government have fear of winning the election so that kept Jawar in prison.
