In the latest string of arrests against journalists, the Ethiopian government on Saturday arrested Meaza Mohammed in the capital Addis Abeba. 

She used to work for Abbay media and recently she launched Roha Media and was providing service via her YouTube channel. 

According to local sources, Meaza was taken from her residence in the borking. 

Two members of the Federal police in uniform reportedly told her that she is wanted for interrogation.  She was arrested for months before she was released in January 2022. 

Well over dozens of journalists have been arrested since Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration launched a crackdown on journalists in recent weeks. 

A few days ago, Federal authorities arrested Temesgen Desalenge, the managing editor of the popular Amharic weekly magazine, Feteh. 

The crackdown has also targeted activists and senior military figures like Brig. General Tefera Mamo, was the leader of the special forces in the Amhara region of Ethiopia. 

What the government calls “law enforcement operations” in the past few weeks have been mostly happening in Addis Ababa and Amhara regions. 

Well over 4500 had been arrested in the Amhara region of Ethiopia and the government calls them “suspects” in crimes that created a security crisis in the region. 

The government has also been claiming operations against the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF)-Shane in the Oromo region of Ethiopia, and the result is, according to the government, OLF-Shane “is not in a position to pose a security threat to Ethiopia. It has weakened.”

  1. Here goes Ethiopia into pieces and down the drain.
    And every body will be happy in sanity
    And Ethiopia will evaporate into the thin air
    And Ethiopians simply forget who they were and who they are today.
    And Happiness is converted into madness
    And as the Ethiopia saying goes in clumsy translation >>>’madness without asking for it’
    And now the flood of exodus of Ethiopians to sanctuary begins — and States will close their doors.
    And that will be the complete TRACE of END of ETHIOPIA from the surface of Earth.

    Here goes Ethiopia into pieces and down the drain.
    And every body will be happy in sanity.
    And Ethiopia will evaporate into the thin air.
    And Ethiopians simply forget who they were and who they are today.
    And Happiness is converted into madness.
    And as the Ethiopia saying goes in clumsy translation ’madness without asking for it’.
    And now the exodus of Ethiopians will continue in monumental speed—and States will close their doors.
    And that will be the complete ENDING of ETHIOPIA.
    And the glorious name ETHIOPIA will be vanished from the surface of the Earth.
    And if, you disagree , the ancient insightful saying of Ethiopia will be your guide (in crooked translation) & “HERE IS THE HORSE, AND HERE IS THE VAST FIELD FOR RIDING”. THE END
    Oh! Oh! Oh! …. SMILE , if you can. It is my medicinal secrete & TRUST ME ha ha ha !!!!!!!!

  3. Free all Journalists, and all Political prisoners including Fannos and innocent Amharas abducted without reason and unjustly.

    Get out of Amhara Zone and Go To Oromia Zone where violence and crime is spreading unchecked.

    Stop the State Sponsored Genocide and violence against Amharas!!!

    Stop Targeting Amharas and uphold the rule of law and equal treatment to All.

    PM Abiy Ahmed is breaking the law of equal rights, ethnic Zones rights and attacking innocent Amharas rights to live in peace!!!
    Stop stealing and looting Amharas!!11
