PG7, which had been labeled a terrorist organisation by the Ethiopian government has since been struck off that list and its leaders have renounced rebellion.

Having expressed satisfaction with ongoing reforms championed by the prime minister Abiy Ahmed, Tsege and other PG7 leaders have decided to return home and pursue a peaceful democratic struggle.

Tsege, who is also a British citizen, has been married to British citizen Yemi, and they have three children together (Hilawit, Menabe, and Yilak).

The family currently live in London.
