Born in 1961 in West Wollega district of western Ethiopia, Bekele Gerba went to primary school in Boji Dirmaji and finished his secondary school in Gimbi senior optional school. Bekele was graduated with BA degree in unknown dialect and writing from the Addis Abeba University (AAU) and instructed in Dembi Dolo and Nejo secondary schools in western Ethiopia, among others. He completed his post graduate investigations in 2001 in showing English as an unknown dialect at the AAU and went to Adama Teachers' College, 98kms south of Addis Abeba, where he showed English and Afaan Oromo. Associated with supposedly supporting understudies' uproar that occurred a year prior, Bekele was expelled in 2005 by the school. He at that point came to Addis Abeba where he instructed in two private colleges for a long time until he was utilized in 2007 as a full time instructor by the AUU where he kept educating English. Bekele's political vocation started in 2009 when he joined the resistance, Oromo Federalist Democratic Movement (OFDM), as an individual from the official board of trustees and leader of the advertising office. Bekele partook and lost in the 2010 parliamentary races in which the decision EPRDF asserted over 99% of the seats in parliament. A dad of four, Bekele was captured in 2011 and condemned to eight years in jail associated with supposedly having a place with the restricted Oromo Liberation Front (OLF). Upon request to the Supreme Court, his condemning was diminished to three years and seven months with a privilege to parole. After the merger in 2012 of OFDM and Oromo Peoples' Congress (OPC) that wound up known as the Oromo Federalist Congress (OFC) Bekele was delegated as First Deputy Chairman while he was all the while serving his sentence. Despite the fact that he was paroled and was qualified to be free in 2014 Bekele was discharged in the principal seven day stretch of April 2015 simply after he completed his condemning.
