A radical ethnic Oromo nationalist group, Oromo Liberation Front-Shane (OLF-Shane), is wreaking havoc on civilians in the Oromo region of Ethiopia.

Government authorities, both in the Federal and regional levels, have admitted that there are individuals within government structures that are facilitating the attack on civilians in the region.

Opposition parties too also been demanding the government to prioritize protecting the security of citizens in the Oromo region in the face of OLF-Shane, as the government calls it, massacre of civilians.

Now Rio Olympic Marathon silver medalist Feyissa Lelissa is speaking out against the terrorist group. He told EMS media that his own families in the rural area of Jeldu had to escape and take a refugee with him because of the attack.

He also said that there are some elements in the government structure that facilitate the attack by OLF-Shane militant groups. He cited a school principal with a sniper assault rifle as an example to make his point that some people who work for the government are also clandestinely working with the militant group.

It is unclear what the militant group seeks to achieve.

Take a listen to what Rio Olympic Marathon silver medalist Feyissa Lelissa had to say about the group.

  1. What a farce. For 4 years he says nothing and today he decides to make a useless statement. No one is listening to your kind anymore. We know that you have privileges and wealth and businesses using your Oromo ethnicity. Amharas know who stands with whom so keep your crocodile tears to yourself Feyisa.
    Where were you when Amharas were massacred in Shashemene by your Oromo Quero
    Where were you when Amharas were being burned alive in Bale and Arsi
    Where were you when Amharas were being dragged behind motorcycles to their death

    Take your statement and shove it up your $&@

    Not Sincerely
    Belay and all Amharas

    • Had he talked out three years ago, you would have complained all the same. Do you know why you did not utter a word when Tplf was massacring Oromo youth in 2016?

    • All amharas? That is your personal statement, that sentiment is not shared amongst all of those people.. Stop making us into a monolith for your culture war, please.
