University Students from different parts of Ethiopia who were stranded in the Tigray region< after the defense force withdrew abruptly about two weeks ago, are reportedly trekking out of the region. 

It was the Ethiopian Defense Force and the Federal Police that was in enforcing law after the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) was defeated in early December 2020.

“There is no conducive condition and psychological readiness to continue studying,” Voice of America Amharic Service cited students as saying. 

Many of them have reached Wollo and Afar region of Ethiopia. Some of them are medical students who were placed at Ayder Hospital as interns. 

Melat Beyene is a medicine Student. VOA Amharic cited her as saying, ” In our campus, there is schism and labelling students as supporters of government and opposers of government.” And that was a compelling reason for her to leave the region, she said. 

A few days ago, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education announced that the students were in good condition. 

Parents have been worried about the situation of their children and calling for government and international support to rescue their children to safety after the rebel TPLF forces took control of Mekelle City at the end of last month. 

It is unclear as to how many students managed to vacate the region.

  1. TRAGEDY of CLASSICAL NATURE
    LOSS of HUMAN LIFE for WHOSE INTEREST??????
    PARENTS ARE LEFT EMPTY WITH SHATTERED HOPE
    WHO IS THE CRIMINAL WHO WAS HIDING TO SAVE HIS SKIN ???
    WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COUNTLESS DEAD YOUNGSTERS ???
    INDEED, IS IT NOT THE CRUCIAL TIME TO DETECT AND HOLD THE IRRESPONSIBLE PERSON FOR JUSTICE?
    DO WE NEED TO HAVE MORE DEAD BODIES JUST TO SATSFY THE EGO OF ONE PERSON?
    IT SEEMS SOCIETIES ARE NUMBED TO FACE A SINGLE MORTAL AND BRING THE DEVIL TO JUSTICE.
    OR PERHAPS IT IS IN OUR NATURE TO FACE THE ATROCITIES OF INDIVIDUAL DEMENTED HUMAN CREATURES …..

  2. Danger! In order gto out extreme pressure on ethiopia and givt, 50k ” ethiopians” are flooding in ethiopia via Saudi. I wiuld put the entire people in the biggest camp, get ethiopians to work. Meaning, spy, screen every individual contact families, to determine these are mot egypt programmed ethiopians, aka weyanes aka olf aka, ethiopian- looking Sudanese, aka Bereket amara groups. Get those ethiopians to go back to work by screening the enemies within. Ethiopia does not have the tesource or job but create temporary housing for the good ones, let between government and ethiopian people provide food. That is it. Food and shelter must be enough and inreturn, they should volubteer. I believe, eth can also curb its poverty and honelessness to get people volunteer in every corner of tge coubtry, inbreturn between eth govt, business, goodwill of the people provide food and shelter by making themsrlves participatein it. Gas long as the anove enemies are within, tgey will sabotage. Put them in csmp amd get trained ethiopuans ,/volinteer surtound the entire camp. Tigrayans with pro ethiopia mind must bectrained against weyane to liberate tigray against mercinaries.

  3. I belive the entire ethiopians as well.must work towards food production, farming, to control famine, tge surplus cabe ecported. The continuous war on ethiopia, and increasing is because of this reasoin, so that we are starved and foreigbers import poison wheat pretending it is aid and tgey get praised for it. The past 30 yrs is evcident enouhh food aid had not helped ethiopia.Weyane is destroying tigrayans for foreigners. To cleanse the area. The poison food and famine decreases iq, that makes sense what is happening at weyane who is food dependent while it had ample 30 yrs to decelop and make tigray self suuicent ibstead of creating war with ethiopia and stealing fertile lands from beighbor. They could have proved to all ethiopians how to make tgeor land fertile for 30 yrs. But the enemy of tigray instead created more enemies, poverty and food shortage for tigray. The international food aid us not providing food yo weyane but arms
