Last week, Abiy Ahmed made a speech in Mekele in which he said that the question of Wolqait is Ethiopian Diaspora manipulation.
His remark angered many in Gonder. Yesterday, Abiy Ahmed had a town hall meeting with residents of Gonder where one of the Wolqait question representative, Atalay Zafe, expressed disappointment of the people due to Abiy Ahmed’s remark. He was thrown to prison for speaking out on the question of Wolkait as a representative of people in Wolkait and was released when the government decided to release political prisoners.
During the meeting yesterday, Ataly Zafe spoke with clarity that the identity question belongs to the people in Wolqait and the entire Amhara people to which the audience responded with a great applause. Watch the video below.
