A Tour of Violence in Oromia

Staff by Correspondent

Qeerroo-ViolenceOctober 28, 2019 (Ezega.com) – Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed says his government will work hard for true federalism in Ethiopia and will never withdraw until the demands of the Oromo people are met.

His speech comes from attempts to provoke another wave of violence by the Oromo youth group Qeerroo in Adama, Modjo and Sebeta.

In a statement from the Oromia Communications Bureau, the regional power in co-operation with the public has taken control of violence.

Abiy urged the Oromo people to unite more than ever by dissolving their differences through discussions. To welcome the event, Oromo seniors and Abba Gedas called during a meeting where only the Oromo Broadcast Network (OBN) was invited.

Farklılık The difference in appearance should not be so high that it does not compromise the unity of the Oromo people, as quoted by Defense Minister Lemma Megersaa OBN. Lemma said that members of the defense forces will take proportional measures against people in similar unrest in the future.

Meanwhile, the ethnic Amhara Christians, protected in the churches of Gebrekirstos and Kidanemiheret in the Arsi region of the Oromia region, said the churches still fearing attacks outside are in place and are at risk of genocide.

Reports from the Ethiopian Orthodox Church said 52 Orthodox Christians were killed during prolonged violence, and many followers of the church were unhappy with the Prime Minister's speech and the government's commitment to bringing the perpetrators to justice.

“We feel insecure because our citizens who left their homes did not come back; They were killed. There are several members of the defense force who defend us against Qeerroo, who roams us and burns our houses. ”

Amhara's Information Council called on the government to bring the perpetrators of the latest violence to justice, claiming that at least 67 people were killed and more than 200 injured.

President of the Council Gebeyaw Tiruneh said the attacks were based on people's ethnic background and religious background. He warned that the situation would quickly get out of control unless it was handled quickly.

The Oromia Bureau of Security Affairs said people who were involved in inciting violence were arrested. The Bureau says more than 200 people have been arrested, allegedly involved in unrest. Iddet The violence calmed down almost everywhere the “demonstrations ve took place, and he said that the displaced by the violence returned home.

However, many Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is losing confidence in matters related to Oromia. There is a widespread perception that the government lacks transparency when it comes to conflicts stemming from or involving Oromia, including denying cruelty, underestimating the seriousness of crimes, and not bringing perpetrators to justice. Over the past year, the state of Oromia has been involved in border conflicts with several other states. The state also witnessed many unheard-of bank robberies and kidnappings in Ethiopia during peacetime. Qeerroo was involved in many clashes in and around Addis Ababa.

Many investigations were announced, but a few resulted in the sequel. At a briefing late last month, the General Attorney's Office announced that more than 2000 people, who allegedly killed more than 1,000 people and injured thousands, were still large.

Meanwhile, the Ethiopians in Washington, DC, will make demonstrations demanding Abiy's government to enforce the law and order.
