Born in Ethiopia and of Oromo ethnicity, Mr. B and his family supported the Oromo National Congress and the Oromo People’s Congress Organization instead of the ruling party. He publicly supported a political candidate and friend fighting for Oromo rights, and was arrested, beaten, tortured, interrogated, and threatened with death for his support. Despite staying away from politics, he was again arrested and forced to sign an agreement, promising to promote the government party. He then fled Ethiopia for safety in the U.S.
