Good riddance Haile Gebrselassie!

After watching Haile Gebrselassie, a genuine sporting legend of our time, sing high praises to Meles Zenawi, the late Ethiopian dictator, I have to rescind the encouraging words I had for him three years ago in projecting him as an aspiring political leader that Ethiopians could look up to. Watch these two clips (forward to 3:48 and 1:05 respectively) and you be the judge.

The commentator on the clip below has expressed my sentiments about Haile's betrayal better than I could.

So you are saying that Haile has no right to express his opinion, and to support a political party of his choice?
