The political ideology that the Ethiopian regime under TPLF followed for the last 27 years is now bringing about havoc to the country. Ethiopians who have intermarried and lived together for ages are now fighting each other. Dozens of civilians have been killed and tens of thousands displaced in the last three weeks alone in the parts of Southern Ethiopia. And it seems that the conflict was somehow orchestrated.
Prime minister Abiy Ahmed traveled to parts of southern region where there was conflict (namely Hawassa, Sodo and Wolkite) and held discussion with residents.
He called on authorities on zone and district level who were involved in the violence, through action or inaction, to resign.
In a televised message from Wolkite, prime minister Abiy took time to thank Eritrean president Isayas Afeworki for what he described as good news during the celebration of Eritrea’s Martyrs day. He was referring to the president’s decision to send delegation to Ethiopia. Abiy said that it is with a great pleasure that he received the good news on the historic day of Martyrs – commemoration of combatants who died for their cause.
