Protest in connection with restructuring the East Borena zone of Oromia region is still active. DW Amharic cited residents from the area to report that businesses and public services in the region are closed. 

Business closures are meant to protest government heavy handed policy in imposing the new arrangement. 

East Borena zone administration was established by combining areas from Guji, Borena and Bale zones of the region. The arrangement has caused grievances from residents of the area. And the resistance to it is far from over despite a series of coercive measures on the part of the government.

Before the new arrangement, Goro Dola district used to be under the Guji zone but residents of the district did not like it.  The momentum of anti-government protest in the district is not subsiding, based DW Amharic report. 

Government has been cracking down on those who protested the new administrative arrangement.  So far more than 120 residents have been arrested.

DW Amharic cited an elderly man, who spoke on condition of anonymity for safety reasons,  as saying that authorities in the new administrative structure were not elected ones. They are appointed ones which he opposes.  From the report, the head of the district administration himself is in prison although court set him free. 

“What is being done is that those not elected are imposed on us with coercion. Those who are popular and who were a voice for the people are in jail. This way they are working to administer us coercively and the people are saying ‘no’ – and leaving the town. They are forcing us with soldiers but there is not a single leader whom people like,” he said. 

So far about five vehicles are set on fire in connection with the protest, local residents told the source. 

Mediation effort through elders in the area yielded no result. 

For the people resisting the new structure, the solution is restoration of the former administrative arrangement. “We do not believe that forceful administration is a solution,” a resident said. 

The source said newly appointed authorities, Getu Chuluke and Tajura Oda ( deputy of the new zonal administration) declined to answer phone calls or text messages. 

The security situation in the Oromo region of Ethiopia has been unreliable, if not worse, due to the radical ethnic Oromo nationalist group, Oromo Liberation Army, militant activity  in the region- which is said to have clandestine support from some within the government structure. Guji zone was one of the areas affected by the problem. 

Nine months after the end of the devastating war between Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed administration and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the Ethiopian government is still struggling with security problems. In the past two weeks, Fano (militia in the Amhara region) clashed with the Ethiopian defense force. The government imposed a state of emergency last week.

    Can capocrimine, pp mafia boss, don abiy the terrible, butcher, pastor and doctor aka 7ኛ ጨ manage to have one day, just one day in Ethiopia, where no Ethiopian is killed, arrested, tortured, imprisoned and where there is one day of no protes. Just one day.

    Is the grim reaper, the merchant of death የተከበሩት ጠ/ሚ capable of having just one normal day in his 5 years of bloodshed and mayhem?

    TPLF mafia member in USA must stop defaming religious leaders from other ethnic groups for financial gan as there are many fake monks from Tigray as well.
    These individuals , TPLF mafia religious group like Abba Stalin(defrocked monk) , were monopolizing human resource settings in order to exclusively hire their own relatives, while blocking other qualified individuals. It is worth noting that they incessantly discuss the actions of others during the prolonged 2-year civil war. However, it is imperative to acknowledge that they themselves have committed similar crimes during the tenure of the TPLF rule.
    you have fake monks from Adowa too you have embezzlers and robbers from Tigray like Abba Histan . You can only talk the role of Abba Histan in Tigray war. Please all of you , Report Abba stalin’s channel to Yoube!!

    Amhara must be freed from Fanno. The Amhara don’t require assassins or thieves since they coexist happily with other Ethiopians without being forced to choose war criminals fannos from the USA as their leaders.
    ****NO more killings of innocent civilians, MORE negotiations required!!****

  5. Not surprised by this. Orommmuma crowd have been busy in designing their own grand fantasy scheme of lOromo world for decades and even forcing local people to accept their ideas. They are creating non existant problems from scratch and then llooking solutions for the same problems like the Sheger concep and others . It is top-down political scheme with disregard for the local poplation and immediate needs. While Biorena and Bale suffers from drought , corruption , poverty and communal violence and expecting some help , they are bushed instead for new admdtrative regions by incorporatiing vast area sliced illegally from neighboring Somali state and other regiions.

    Google translation: Amhara woke up and said, “Fanno murderers not represent me.”
    The honorable people of Amhara came out without any provocation and said to the executors of Shabiya’s mission, Zemen Kase, Abebe Belew , and Shaleka Dawit , the rich man, the power-seeking robbers, and the murderers, they do not represent me.

    Amhara must be freed from Fanno. The Amhara don’t require assassins or thieves since they coexist happily with other Ethiopians without being forced to choose war criminals fannos from the USA as their leaders.
