(borkena) Unconfirmed news by Ethiopian Review claims that up to 3000 Oromo Students are sent to what it described as “concentration camps” in Afar Region, arid region in the Eastern part of Ethiopia, after they were detained in a round up.
The news source also published a picture of shaved young Ethiopians crowded in queue.
On the contrary, other sources in government administrative structure do have a totally different narrative. Addis Ababa City website reports that over 3500 homeless youth in Addis Ababa are mobilized for skills training to be moved to Addis Raey training center in Afar region.
According to Addis Ababa City report, it seems that the skills training is a cooperative project between Addis Ababa City Administration Labor and Social Affairs Bureau, EFDR Metals and Engineering corporation and Elshaday charity organization. The report makes no mention of the ethnicity of the street children.
