Amhara regional state said that multifaceted efforts made to resolve the problem related to the Kemant Identity Question committee in the central Gonder, West Gonder and Gonder areas of the region in a peaceful manner yielded no result.

As a result, the region’s Security Council passed a decision to stop the violence once and for all.

“The Federal government and Amhara regional state have been handling the issue with patience and great foresight while pursuing multifaceted ways to resolve the problem. However, the situation is not changing,” Ethiopian News Agency cited Amhara region security authorities. 

As a result, said Amahara regional state, it has invited the intervention of the Federal government to end the problem for good.

Questions raised by the Kemant Identity Committee are addressed in accordance with the constitution. Yet, the region continues to experience violence which has affected both Amahra Kemant communities, said the regional government. The development has also obstructed Ethiopia’s international trade with Sudan as the Ethio-Sudan road in the region has been closed since about last week of September, according to Amhara region authorities as cited by Ethiopian News Agency.

It has reached the point where it is affecting the rights of communities to live in peace.  The statement from Amhara region security council blamed the Kemant Identity Committee of security problems in the region.

Amhara region Security Council, formed to resolve the issue, warned that Ethiopian Defense Forces and other security forces will take any legal measures to restore security and peace in the region. It means that security forces will now operate in the area with the extra layer of legal power they are given due to the security situation.

In addition to those who are engaged in causing violence, those who are giving any form of cover to those engaged in violent action, in the words of regional security authorities, will be subject to legal action.

Carrying firearms is banned indefinitely in the region except for authorized security personnel.  In that regard, the statement explicitly banned even those who are carrying firearms with the pretext of maintaining order and law through an informal structure. 

Gondar-Metema, Gonder-Humera, Gondar-Debark and Gonder-Bahir Dar road disruptions or closures will not be tolerated, and the regional government has authorized deployed security forces to take measures against it.

It was also noted that any entity obstructing the formation of Kemant autonomous administration will not be accepted.

There has been a sporadic violence in central Gonder for nearly a year now – a situation has caused internal displacement for nearly 100,000 people.

It is alleged that Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) is pursuing a strategy of making the region a war zone, and is behind those who are claiming to be Kemant Identity Committee.

Recent remarks by ethnic Tigray politicians suggest that TPLF is likely to open war on its own although it remains unclear war against who.

  1. EPRDF wants Ethiopians to assume TPLF and the other EPRDF member parties are so different which is a lie



    TPLF and the rest of the EPRDF are the same., If anyone is different from TPLF in ideology OR would even consider going to war it is the non EPRDF affiliated people, it is the 120 + political parties, definitely that go or TPLF like always consider geniciding while lavishing OPDO / ODP officials.
    Those who are fire and hay are EPRDF and the other 120+ political parties in the country, not TPLF and EPRDF member parties..

    TPLF and the rest of EPRDF are very similar compared to the 120+ parties in the country.

  2. very important mesdsage to all memebers of Orthodox church:

    Our priceless crosses, Icons, paintings , sacred books are in the hands of individual priests, and socalled church leaders of the western world,, such as Russian orthodox priests and others

    please take a heed and protect our invaluable heritages. They are heritages of orthodox and even ethiopian muslim or protestant community as we all belong to one nation, ethiopia.

    I have seen icons and crosses in the hands of western priests from orthodox and catholic church . I tried my best to persuade them giving us but I couldn’t succeeed.

    The message here is let us protect our heritages and surrender those who sell and hand in our heritages to westerners.

    Some of the people who buy our heritages with 10 or 50 dollars are the one whom you trust and welcome them with glarious festivity like you did in Bahirdar or other cities
