The massacre of innocent Ethiopians in Burayu has caused not just grief but also concern among millions of Ethiopians.

Mekonnen Habteghiorgis Birru was apparently born and raised in Addis Ababa from an Oromo family but he rather prefer to identify himself as Ethiopian.

He seem to be angered by opposition leaders like Bekele Gerba (secretary of Oromo Federalist Congress) for instigating ethnic based sensationalism.
