Mekelle University Students, who were stranded in the City after the Ethiopian Defense Force withdrew from the region, rather in what seemed to be an abrupt situation, at the end of June, have reportedly reached the Afar region of Ethiopia. 

It is the university that organized buses to transport about 324 students to the capital Addis Ababa via the Afar region, according to a report by Wazema radio. 

They on Monday reached Semera, seat of the Afar regional state. The Ethiopian Defense Force was escorting the students. 

There are also 45 students who arrived in Kobo town, a town where there has been fighting between Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) forces and Amhara region special forces and militia. 

Wazema radio said that the students have not proceeded to Woldia town. from Kobo, due to an exchange of fire in Robit – small town between Kobo and Woldia – between TPLF forces and Amhara region’s special forces. 

The condition of students who were studying at Adigrat and Aksum universities is unknown at this writing. 

Parents of the University students last week were protesting in front of the United Nations Branch office in the capital Addis Ababa to express their disappointment with the UN.

    Humble Opinion, … July 2021
    In my humble opinion, it is the greatest insult to Ethiopia. If I am mistaken, I am very sorry and glad to be educated in information paper from official for ALL tReaders to gain out of it.

    Anyway, going into my reaction, Ethiopia is an ancient imdependent country, rich of history and wisdom of its own that can administrate her government in its own wisdom. Ethiopia has gone through thick and thin and, needless to say, it knows its own affairs. The decision that was taken for the Ethiopian students to go to a foreign sanctuary was, in my opinion, the greatest insult to the history of Ethiopia.

    It is extremely sad that the University students had to run, for rescue, to the United Nations Branch for help. It is truly a naked insult to the Government and PEOPLE of ETHIOPIA. Ethiopia can handle its own affairs. The matter at hand has nothing to do with international affairs. It is the affairs of Ethiopia alone.

    Would we use the same criteria on the affairs of USA or Great Britain or France, or Italy ???????? It may be a laughable question simply because we are hypnotized to have INFERIORITY complex and believe that the WHITE RACE is superior over the BLACK RACE. In fact, If I dare say, our entire education system was based on that INFERIORITY COMPLEX ; thus, completely abandoning our own history. to the ;point of being ashamed of who we are. It is the greatest CRIME perpetrated by self anointed colonial masters.

    It is the saddest historical facts.

    In this case, it is hoped that the Prime Minister of Ethiopia rectify the situation for future action.
    THE END

    NO, NO, NO … the “source” to abrogate the responsibility of Ethiopia must be asked diplomatically for abrogating the responsibility of an independent free country — Ethiopia.

    In this case, it is hoped that the Prime Minister of Ethiopia rectify the situation for future action.
    THE END
