The demand for statehood has been raging in southern Ethiopia. It has now arrived in the capital Addis Ababa. Unlike the case in South, Addis Ababa’s regional statehood demand will be a challenge to radical Oromo-nationalist activists. Take a listen to Andafta reportage below (Amharic.)

    This is nonesense. The residents of Addis Abeba should chart their own destiney instead being taken over by racist and blood thirsty ethnonationalists. No city in the world is rulted by a tribe or by a party based ethnic dominance. These people have a mind set of the dark ages, if not further back.

    Last Addis Abeba was never an Oromo land, they drove out the Gurages out and if there is any claim, it belongs to the Gurages. Nonethless, it is stupid to look backward instead of going forward and building a modern city, creating jobs, growing the economy.

    These fanatics are diverting and distracting the real burning issues: fighting COVID, Egyptian attempt to surrept Ethiopian soverignity and the grinding poverty that the Ethiopian people are going through.

    So, all Oromos, Amharas, Somalis, Afars tell these lunatics that they are out of place and stop igniting bloodshed that will consume many lives including their own if you don’t get their senses.
